Casting has been announced for the upcoming Mint Theater production of Harold Chapin's The New Morality. Directed by Mint producing artistic director Jonathan Bank, the work begins performances August 22 and continues through October 11. Opening night is set for September 21.

Set on a houseboat on the Thames in 1911, The New Morality tells the story of an argument between a husband and wife after she catches him lavishing attention on their neighbor. Chapin had numerous one-acts and three full-length plays produced between 1910 and 1914 before enlisting in the Royal Army Medical Corp and dying on the battlefield in 1915. The New Morality is his final play, which was first produced in 1920.

The company will be led by Christian Campbell (Reefer Madness), Brenda Meaney (Indian Ink), Ned Noyes (You Can't Take It With You), Michael Frederic (Bill W and Dr. Bob), Douglas Rees (Donogoo), Clemmie Evans (Louie), and Kelly McCready, who makes her off-Broadway debut.

The production features scenic design by Steven C. Kemp, costumes by Carisa Kelly, lighting by Christian DeAngelis, original music and sound design by Jane Shaw, and props by Joshua Yocom.
