Trent Dawson -- best known for his multiple Daytime Emmy-nominated role as Henry Coleman on As the World Turns -- will star in the world premiere of Samuel Brett Williams' The Revival, to be presented at The Lion @ Theatre Row, September 9-25, with an official opening on September 14. Michole Biancosino will direct.

In the play, a Harvard-educated son of a Southern Baptist preacher returns to his Arkansas hometown to rebuild his father's congregation. Under pressure to grow the congregation to compete with neighboring mega-Churches, the young Pastor seizes an opportunity to cleanse a mysterious stranger of his homosexuality, becoming an overnight evangelical superstar.

The cast will also include David Darrow, Raymond McAnally, and Aidan Sullivan. Creative team will be announced shortly.
