Playwrights Horizons has announced complete casting for the world premiere of Log Cabin, a new play by Pulitzer Prize finalist Jordan Harrison and directed by Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon.

As previously announced, five-time Emmy nominee Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family) will star as Ezra, the protagonist of the ensemble comedy. Joining him will be Phillip James Brannon (Bootycandy), Cindy Cheung (Iowa, 13 Reasons Why), stand-up comedian and actor Ian Harvie (Transparent), Talene Monahon (Tell Hector I Miss Him), and Dolly Wells (The Whirligig, Bridget Jones's Diary).

The production will feature scenic design by Tony Award nominee and Obie Award winner Allen Moyer, costume design by Lortel Award winner Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Obie Award winner Russell H. Champa, and sound design by Lortel Award winner Leah Gelpe. Amanda Spooner will be the production stage manager.

The story is described as follows: "It's a faraway age of hope and inclusivity; in other words, it's 2015. When a tight-knit circle of married gays and lesbians — comfy in the new mainstream — sees themselves through the eyes of their rakish transgender pal (Harvie), it's clear that the march toward progress is anything but unified. With stinging satire and acute compassion, Jordan Harrison's pointed comedy charts the breakdown of empathy that happens when we think our rights are secure, revealing conservative hearts where you'd least expect."

Log Cabin will begin previews June 1 with an opening night set for June 25. The limited engagement is currently scheduled to play through July 15.
