La Jolla Playhouse has announced the cast and creative team for its world-premiere production of At the Old Place, written by Rachel Bonds and directed by Playhouse associate artistic director Jaime Castañeda. Performances will run at the Mandell Weiss Forum July 5-31.
The story is described as follows: "In her mid-40s and facing a breaking point, a literature professor returns to her childhood home in Virginia only to discover two young people camped out on her lawn struggling with their own life crises. At the Old Place is a keenly-observed, intimate new play about the search for the roads not taken."
The cast will feature Heidi Armbruster (Time Stands Still) as Angie, Brenna Coates (The Wolves) as Jolene, Benim Foster (Barefoot in the Park) as Harrison, and Marcel Spears (Picasso at the Lapin Agile) as Will.
The creative team includes Lauren Helpern (scenic design), David Israel Reynoso (costume design), Lap Chi Chu (lighting design), Melanie Chen (sound design), Gabriel Greene (dramaturg), and Katrina Herrmann (stage manager).
