Photo Coverage: Inside Opening Night of Playwrights Horizons' THE PATRON SAINT OF SEA MONSTERS

Playwrights Horizons World Premiere production of The Patron Saint of Sea Monsters, a new play by Blackburn Prize winner Marlane Meyer (The Chemistry of Change and Moe's Lucky Seven for PH; Etta Jenks), will play a limited engagement through Sunday evening, December 1 at Playwrights Horizons' Peter Jay Sharp Theater (416 West 42nd Street). Directed by two-time Obie Award winner Lisa Peterson (The Chemistry of Change for PH; An Iliad, Slavs!), the production opened last night, November 12, and you can check out photos from the festivities below!

The cast features CAndy Buckley (Scandalous, Cabaret, Shockheaded Peter, View of the Dome), Obie Award winnerRob Campbell (Small Tragedy at PH; Translations, The Singing Forest, Him, Mad Forest), Laura Heisler (Kin, Doris to Darlene, People Be Heard at PH; Coram Boy), Haynes Thigpen(Our House at PH; Dead Accounts, Misalliance),Danny Wolohan (Off-Broadway debut) and Jacqueline Wright (LA Weekly Award, Best Actress for Clyt at Home).

Aubrey (Ms. Heisler), a very determined romantic, believes she's met her soul-mate in Calvin (Mr. Campbell), a boozing womanizer. But in this tilted, thoughtful comedy, true love is an even more tangled predicament. Peopled by an assortment of eccentrics, mystics and front porch philosophers, this new play from Marlane Meyer is a sweet polemic, an unexpected love story, and a deliciously cockeyed view of the sustaining - and destructive - power of belief.
