Film actress Chloë Grace Moretz (Hugo) and Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh (Behind the Candelabra) are set to make their New York stage debuts with The Library, a new play by Scott Z. Burns, at the The Public Theater. The drama will run in the Public's Newman Theater from March 25-April 27.

Moretz, whose screen credits also include the films Carrie, Kick-Ass, and Dark Shadows, plays Caitlin Gabriel, a young woman who survives a deadly shooting at her high school and struggles to tell the tale to her family and the authorities, as the media begins to portray her in a different light.

Burns is the author of the screenplays for the films Side Effects, Contagion, and The Informant!, among others. Soderbergh, best known as the Oscar-winning director of the film Traffic, has also directed the films Sex, Lies, and Videotape, Erin Brokovich, and the Oceans 11 film trilogy.

Featured on the creative team are Riccardo Hernandez (scenic design) and Gabriel Berry (costume design).

Additional casting for the production will be announced in the coming weeks.
