Penelope Skinner's Linda to Star Janie Dee, Molly Ranson, Meghann Fahy, and More
The work's New York premiere will be presented by Manhattan Theatre Club.
Casting is set for the Manhattan Theater Club production of Linda, a new play directed by Penelope Skinner and directed by Lynne Meadow. Performances will begin February 7, with opening set for February 28, at New York City Center – Stage I.
The play is described as follows: "Linda Wilde has it all. She's an award-winning senior executive as well as a busy wife and mother. But when she pitches a revolutionary concept that could change the way the world looks at women of a certain age, she finds herself fighting for her own relevance as every part of her carefully considered life starts to show cracks."
Olivier Award winner Janie Dee will head the cast in the title role, alongside Meghann Fahy, Molly Griggs, Jennifer Kieda, Maurice Jones, Donald Sage Mackay, Molly Ranson, and John C. Cennema. The creative team for Linda includes Walt Spangler (scenic design), Jennifer Von Mayrhauser (costume design), Jason Lyons (lighting design), Fitz Patton (sound design), and Ben Furey (dialect coach).
