The play is set in an idyllic Catskills retreat in the early 1960s and focuses on an elegant and imperious German-Jewish refugee mother, her eccentric daughter, and the mysterious young man who enters their lives. Greenberg will also be represented this season on Broadway by the revised libretto for the Roundabout Theatre's production of Pal Joey. His many other works include Take Me Out, The Violet Hour, Three Days of Rain, and The Dazzle.
The creative team includes Jonathan Fensom (sets and costumes), Mark McCullough (lighting), Darron L. West, and Bray Poor (sound). Grindley received a Tony Award nomination for Journey's End and directed the Roundabout's revival of Pygmalion. He will direct the Roundabout's upcoming revival of The Philanthropist starring Matthew Broderick in April.
