The Playwrights Horizons' production of Lindsey Ferrentino's This Flat Earth has released photos ahead of opening night set for April 9. Check out photos from the world premiere, directed by Tony winner Rebecca Taichman (Indecent), in the gallery below.


Featured in the cast are Cassie Beck, Ella Kennedy Davis, Lynda Gravátt, Lucas Papaelias, and Ian Saint-Germain. The production will feature scenic design by Dane Laffrey, costume design by Paloma Young, lighting design by Christopher Akerlind, and sound design by Mikhail Fiksel.

At a middle school in a seaside town, the unthinkable has happened, placing a bewildered community in the national spotlight. Stuck at home in a state of shocked limbo, Julie (Davis) and Zander (Saint-Germain), two 13-year-olds, try to make sense of the chaos they witnessed, their awkward crushes and an infinitely more complicated future — but the grown-ups are no help at all. An urgent response to our times, This Flat Earth is a startling and deeply felt story of growing up in our confounding world.
