Oscar nominee Chloe Sevigny will star in Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s Abigail / 1702, which as previously reported, is being presented as part of New York Stage and Film’s 2012 Powerhouse Theater season. David Esbjornson will direct the production, which runs June 27-July 8.
The play is set ten years after the events of The Crucible, as Abigail Williams is living under a new identity in Boston and haunted by her past. When a mysterious figure appears, she confronts Salem’s dark history head on and must atone for her role in it.
Sevigny received her Oscar nomination for Boys Don’t Cry, with other screen credits including American Pscho, Zodiac, and Big Love.
