Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of THE COMMON PURSUIT!

Meet the cast of Roundabout Theatre Company's new Off-Broadway production of Simon Gray's comedy-drama The Common Pursuit, directed by Moisés Kaufman. The Common Pursuit will feature Kristen Bush as "Marigold," Kieran Campion as "Peter," Josh Cooke as "Stuart," Jacob Fishel as "Martin," Tim McGeever as "Humphry," Lucas Near-Verbrugghe as "Nick." Check out the photos below!

The Common Pursuit will begin performances May 4, 2012 and officially open on May 24, 2012 at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre / Laura Pels Theatre (111 West 46th Street). This is a limited engagement through July 29, 2012.

The design team includes Derek McLane (Sets), Clint Ramos (Costumes) and David Lander (Lights).

The Common Pursuit chronicles twenty years in the lives of six friends, from their ambitious collegiate days to their surprising discoveries in the real world. Idealistic Cambridge student Stuart Thorne enlists some of his classmates to help him launch a new literary magazine. With the pursuit of great literature as their common thread, they become lifelong friends. But when damaging secrets crop up and business demands creep in, Stuart is faced with some unexpected decisions. Delightfully witty and remarkably poignant, The Common Pursuit is a captivating journey from who we think we are...to who we turn out to be.

The Common Pursuit had its American premiere at Long Wharf Theater in 1985. The off-Broadway production in 1986 ran 352 performances and received the 1987 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play and the 1987 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play.
