Goodman Theatre has announced an all-female cast and creative team for its world premiere of Rebecca Gilman's Twilight Bowl, directed by Erica Weiss, running February 8-March 10, 2019.

The cast will feature Hayley Burgess, Heather Chrisler, Angela Morris, Becca Savoy, Mary Taylor, and Anne E. Thompson, all of whom reprise their roles from the developmental production in the Goodman's 2017 New Stages Festival of new plays. The creative team will include Regina Garcia (set), Cat Wilson (lighting), Izumi Inaba (costumes), and Victoria Deiorio (sound).

Twilight Bowl is described as follows: "Six young women. One small town. Different lanes. After graduating from a small Wisconsin high school, Sam heads to college on scholarship — but her cousin Jaycee's future isn't looking as bright. As the young women and their friends face adulthood, their local bowling alley becomes a place to celebrate triumphs, confront challenges and forge new identities. With her signature grace, wit and compassion, Rebecca Gilman questions the blueprint for a successful life, and embraces the unknown on the road ahead."
