WP Theater has announced that Pascale Armand will star in the world premiere of Natural Shocks. Written by Lauren Gunderson and directed by May Adrales (Vietgone), the show will run from Sunday, October 28 through Sunday, November 25, with opening night set for Thursday, November 8.

Natural Shocks is described as "a darkly hilarious solo tour de force where an unnamed woman is forced into her basement when she finds herself in the path of a tornado. Trapped there, she spills over into confession, regret, long-held secrets, and giddy new love. But as the storm approaches, she becomes less and less sure where safety lies — and how best to defy the danger that awaits."

Armand was nominated for a Tony Award for her role in Eclipsed, and has also starred in An Octoroon, Ruined, Belleville, and the recent Broadway revival of The Trip to Bountiful with Cicely Tyson.
