WP Theater to Give Theresa Rebeck's What We're Up Against Off-Broadway Premiere
Skylar Astin, Jim Parrack, and Krysta Rodriguez will star in this production of the Pulitzer Prize nominee's 1992 comedy.
Women's Project Theater has announced the off-Broadway premiere of Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck's 1992 comedy What We're Up Against, scheduled for a four-week engagement, October 28-November 26, with opening night set for November 8.
Rebeck's play is described as follows: "It's 1992, and Eliza is the brainy new recruit at a small-shop architecture firm. But she's struggling to get a foothold on even the lowest rung of the company ladder, and starts making moves to blow the lid off their Pandora's box of office politics and social maneuvering, in this sharply hilarious black comedy."
Directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt, the production will star Skylar Astin (the original Spring Awakening), Jim Parrack (Of Mice and Men), and Krysta Rodriguez (the 2015 revival of Spring Awakening), with additional cast members to be announced later. The creative team includes Drama Desk Award nominee Narelle Sissons (scenic design), Tilly Grimes (costume design), Grant Yeager (lighting design), M.L. Dogg (sound design), and Kelly Gillespie, CSA (casting).
