Mark H. Dold
Full cast and creative team have been set for the American premiere of Peter Whelan's The School of the Night to run October 30-December 17 at the Mark Taper Forum. The production, which will open officially on November 9, will be directed by Bill Alexander.

The show provides a fascinating twist to the centuries-old mystery of the sudden and tragically early death of Christopher Marlowe, who was perhaps England's greatest dramatist before the rise of his contemporary, William Shakespeare. Was he really murdered in a barroom brawl on May 30, 1593, or was he involved in a deeper conspiracy on that eventful night?

The cast features Michael Bakkensen, Ian Bedford, Tymberlee Chanel, Paula Christensen, Mark H. Dold, Johnny Giacalone, Michael Kirby, Adrian LaTourelle, Henri Lubatti, Jon Monastero, Rob Nagle, Richard Robichaux, Alicia Roper, John Sloan, Nick Toren, and Gregory Wooddell.

The set design is by Simon Higlet, costume design is by Robert Perdziola, lighting design is by Russell H. Champa, and sound design is by Cricket S. Myers.
