Academy Award winner Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Zoe Kazan, and Anthony Mackie, the stars of Martin McDonagh's new play, A Behanding in Spokane, met the press at Sardi's on Monday, February 1.

The show begins a limited engagement at Broadway's Gerald Schoenfeld Theater beginning on February 15. The production, which will open officially on March 4, will be directed by John Crowley, and feature sets and costumes by Scott Pask and lighting by Brian MacDevitt.

The black comedy involves a man searching for his missing hand (to be played by Walken), two con artists out to make a few hundred bucks (to be played by Mackie and Kazan), and an overly curious hotel clerk (to be played by Rockwell).

McDonagh received Tony nominations for The Beauty Queen of Leenane, The Lieutenant of Inishmore, The Pillowman, and The Lonesome West. His plays also include The Cripple of Inishmaan and A Skull in Connemara. He won the Academy Award for the short film Six Shooter. Crowley directed the Broadway production of The Pillowman.
