Annie Parisse to Head Cast of Playwrights Horizons' Antlia Pneumatica
Anne Washburn's new play will be directed by Ken Rus Schmoll.
Casting has been announced for the upcoming Playwrights Horizons production of Anne Washburn's new play, Antlia Pneumatica. Directed by Ken Rus Schmoll, the work runs at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater from March 11-April 24. Opening night is set for April 4.
The play is described as follows: "In a ranch house deep in Texas Hill Country, a once tight-knit group of friends reunites to bury one of their own. But as they look backward through their lives, it becomes clear they've lost more than just their old pal. In this haunting new play from Anne Washburn, the boundaries between then and now grow disarmingly blurry as these estranged friends confront their slippery past."
The company will be made up of Rob Campbell (All the Way), Nat DeWolf (Betty's Summer Vacation), Crystal Finn (Pocatello), April Matthis (Iowa), Annie Parisse (Clybourne Park), and Maria Striar (A Map of Virtue).
The production will feature scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Tyler Micoleau, sound design by Leah Gelpe, and original music by Daniel Kluger.
