Theatre for a New Audience has announced additional casting for a public reading of Will Eno's Gnit, directed by Oliver Butler, on June 18, 7pm, at the Polonsky Shakespeare Center.

Eboni Booth, Tyne Daly, Ari Graynor, Peter Francis James, and Matthew Maher will join the previously announced Michael C. Hall.

Inspired by Henrik Ibsen's 19th-century play Peer Gynt, Gnit made its world premiere at Louisville's Humana Festival of New American Plays in 2013. Hall performed the play last summer as part of Classic Stage Company's First Look Ibsen Festival, also directed by Oliver Butler.

This reading of Gnit is presented through the Theatre's Studio program (Susanna Gellert, director), which offers residencies to a diverse range of theater artists who engage in risk-taking, artistic development, and experimentation.

Will Eno's recent work includes Wakey, Wakey, which premiered at the Signature Theatre in 2017, The Realistic Joneses, which opened on Broadway in 2014, and The Open House, which won the 2014 Obie Award, the Lortel Award for Outstanding Play, and a Drama Desk Award.
