The world premiere of Samuel D. Hunter's The Healing will be presented by Theater Breaking Through Barriers beginning June 11 at Theatre Row's Clurman Theatre. It will run through July 16.

Directed by Stella Powell-Jones, the production will feature set by Jason Simms, costumes by Christopher Metzger, lighting by Alejandro Fajardo, and sound by Brandon Wolcott. Casting will be announced shortly.

The Healing is described as follows: "Twenty-five years ago, a motley group of friends met as kids at a summer camp where the head counselor secretly taught them that their disabilities could be "cured" through the power of prayer. Today, the group has gathered to mourn the untimely passing of one of its members. Over the course of the night, old wounds are uncovered, friendships are tested and the truth surrounding their late friend becomes troublingly clear."

Theater Breaking Through Barriers is an off-Broadway company integrating able-bodied actors with artists with disabilities.
