10 Out of 12, a new theater-themed play by Anne Washburn (Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric play), will have its world premiere under the direction of Les Waters at Soho Rep., running from May 26-June 21.

Based on notes Washburn took during her past technical rehearsals, 10 out of 12 takes place backstage during a technical rehearsal, re-creating the multilayered experience of designers mixing cues, backstage gossip happening over headset, and actors passing the time while the director struggles to contain the uncontainable. As these activities unfold simultaneously, the audience is given an intimate glimpse into the flurry of life that surrounds the act of theater making.

The 14-member ensemble includes Quincy Tyler Bernstine as Stage Manager, Jeff Biehl as E3, Gibson Frazier as Ben and Charles, Rebecca Hart as Costumes, Nina Hellman as Siget, Old Lady, and Lucille, Sue Jean Kim as Eva and Marie, Bruce McKenzie as Director, Garrett Neergaard as E2, Bray Poor as Sound, David Ross as Jake and Richard, Thomas Jay Ryan as Paul and Carstairs, Conrad Schott as Assistant Director, Wendy Rich Stetson as Lights, and Leigh Wade as Jamie (ASM).

The creative team includes David Zinn (sets), Justin Townsend (lights), Bray Poor (sound), Ásta Bennie Hostetter (costumes), and George Hoffmann and Greg Kozatek (props).
