Complete casting has been announced for the Script in Hand reading of Hugh Whitemore's spy-thriller play Pack of Lies at Westport Country Playhouse on March 10.

Pack of Lies follows a middle-aged British couple who have been asked by Scotland Yard to use their house as an observation station to try and foil a Soviet spy ring operating in the area. Signs then begin to suggest that the spies in question may in fact be their neighbors and best friends. The story is based on true events that led up to the 1961 arrest of the Krogers, two Americans in London spying for the Russians.

The cast features two-time Tony nominee Jayne Atkinson (Enchanted April, House of Cards) as Barbara, four-time Tony winner Boyd Gaines (An Enemy of the People) as Stewart, and Michel Gill (A Man for All Seasons, House of Cards) as Bob. The company also includes Kathleen McNenny as Helen, Alexis Molnar as Julie, Mark Shanahan as Peter, and Zoë Winters as Thelma. Ammie Renée Kinsman will read stage directions along with the role of Sally. Anne Keefe directs.
