Mint Theater Company has announced that it will present the American premiere of Micheál mac Liammóir's play The Mountains Look Different. Directed by Aidan Redmond, the production will run May 30-July 14 at Theatre Row, with opening night set for June 19.

The 1948 play is described as follows: "After a dozen hard years working the streets of London, Bairbre is returning home to Ireland. Three days ago, she married Tom who knows nothing of her past. They plan to settle with Tom's father on his farm and live a simple life, far from the temptations and torments of the sinful city. But it's not easy to escape your past, even among the rocks and ruins of the mountainside."

Ciaran Byrne, Liam Forde, McKenna Harrington, Con Horgan, Cynthia Mace, Daniel Marconi, Brenda Meaney, Paul O'Brien, and Jesse Pennington will star in the production. The creative team will include Vicki R. Davis (scenic design), Andrea Varga (costume design), Christian DeAngelis (lighting design), M. Florian Staab (sound design), and Chris Fields (prop design).
