Today, Red Bull Theater announced the cast for their Staged Reading of The Roaring Girl, by Thomas Dekker and Thomas Middleton: Emily Bergl (of Showtime's "Shameless"), Sheila Bandyopadhyay, Michael Braun, Clifton Duncan, Miriam Hyman, Whit Leyenberger, David Manis, Alex Morf, Tom O'Keefe, Bhavesh Patel, Pearl Rhein, Rocco Sisto, Raphael Nash Thompson, Sam Tsoutsouvas, and Lisa Wolpe.

When Sebastian's father refuses to allow his marriage to his love, Mary, he turns to the most unlikely person for help, the feisty and independent "roaring girl" Moll. With her fearless forays into the scheming London underworld, Moll turns out to be just the right "man" for the job. Her defiant mischief exposes the hypocrisy of a city gone mad with greed and charts a new and unexpected course to true love.
