Steppenwolf Theatre has announced the cast and creative team for their upcoming production of Fake, September 10-November 8, a new play written and directed by ensemble member Eric Simonson.

The play explores the infamous Piltdown Man, purported to be the missing link, with the action occurring as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle invites four guests to his English country home. Each visitor has a connection to the infamous missing link, later exposed as a hoax.

The cast will feature Kate Arrington (Rebecca Eastman, Katarina Meras), Francis Guinan (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Jonathan Cole), and Alan Wilder (Richard Woodbury, Paul Moody) with Coburn Goss (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Doug Arnt) and Larry Yando (Charles Dawson, Henry Billings). The creative team will include Todd Rosenthal (sets), Karin Kopischke (costumes), Joe Appelt (lights) and Barry Funderburg (sound and composition).
