Joining Butler and AuCoin are Obie Award winner Eisa Davis (Passing Strange), Theatre World Award winner Crystal A. Dickinson (Clybourne Park), and Obie Award winner Russell G. Jones (Ruined).
Barfield’s other plays include Of Equal Measure, Dent, The Quick, and Blue Door, which was directed by Silverman at Playwrights Horizons in 2006. Silverman received Obie Awards for her productions of David Greenspan’s Go Back to Where You Are and Lisa Kron’s In the Wake. She has also directed Well, Yellow Face, Coraline, From Up Here, among many others.
The Call‘s creative team includes Rachel Hauck (scenic design), Emily Rebholz (costume design), Matt Frey (lighting design), and Jill BC DuBoff (sound design).
