Cast Set for Circle X Premiere of Battle Hymn

Casting has been announced for the Circle X Theatre Co. world premiere of Battle Hymn, set to run at [Inside] the Ford, January 17-February 21. With direction by John Langs, the production will feature original music by Michael Levine.

Jim Leonard’s newest play is an epic about the pregnancy of 16-year-old Martha, who finds herself pregnant and ostracized on the eve of the Civil War. Determined to not raise her baby in a blood-soaked, violent country, Martha stays pregnant for over a century, until she arrives in San Francisco in 1967.

The cast will feature Bill Heck, Suzy Jane Hunt, Robert Manning Jr., William Salyers, and John Short.
