Photo Coverage: 'In a Dark Dark House' First Rehearsal
Ron Livingston, Louisa Krause and Jason Patric arrived April 17 at Roundabout Studios in New York for their first day of rehearsal of playwright Neil LaBute's world premiere new play, In a Dark Dark House with the MCC Theatre.
LaBute (Fat Pig, The Distance from Here) is MCC Theater's Resident Playwright. Performances of the three-character play (starring Livingston, Krause, and Patric) begin May 16 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre with an official Opening Night set for June 7. The production will be directed by Carolyn Cantor.
"On the grounds of a private psychiatric facility, two family members find themselves brought face to face with each other's involvement in their traumatic past. In court-ordered rehab, Drew calls on his brother, Terry, to corroborate his story of abuse. Drew's request releases barely-hidden animosities between the two; is he using these repressed memories to save himself while smearing the name of his brother's friend and mentor? In Neil LaBute's powerful new play, these siblings must struggle to come to grips with their troubled legacy, both inside and outside their dark family home," according to press materials.
Individual tickets to In a Dark Dark House are priced at $70 and are now available through TicketCentral.com or by calling 212-279-4200.
