Set during Hollywood's notorious blacklist period, FELLOW TRAVELERS explores the complicated relationship between three American icons: director Elia Kazan, writer Arthur Miller, and actress Marilyn Monroe. Look behind the glitter and glamour of the Silver Screen and Broadway to see how the politics of the McCarthy era affected their friendship, and how their friendship affected their work in this intimate and passionate world premiere.

FELLOW TRAVELERS is a new play written by Jack Canfora (POETIC LICENSE, JERICHO). This world premiere is directed by Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award winner Michael Wilson (THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL, THE BEST MAN, Bay Street Theater's GREY GARDENS). Other members of the creative team include Jeff Cowie (Scenic Designer), David C. Woolard(Costume Designer), Ken Billington (Lighting Designer), Mark Bennett (Sound Designer), Rocco DiSanti (Projection Designer), Meg Murphy (Hair & Makeup Designer), Andrew Diaz (Props Designer), Stephen Gabis (Dialect Coach), Robert Bennett (Production Stage Manager), and Denise Yaney (Assistant Stage Manager).

FELLOW TRAVELERS stars Wayne Alan Wilcox (GILMORE GIRLS, Film of RENT, THE NORMAL HEART, CHAPLIN) as Arthur Miller, Vince Nappo (THE LAST TYCOON, FRIENDS WITH KIDS, MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET) as Elia Kazan, Rachel Spencer Hewitt (RETURN TO THE HIDING PLACE, A CIVIL WAR CHRISTMAS) as Marilyn Monroe, Mark Blum (MOZART IN THE JUNGLE, AMY AND THE ORPHANS, THE BEST MAN) as Harry Cohn, and Jeffrey Bean (BELLS ARE RINGING, AMADEUS) as Roy Brewer/Kermit Bloomgarden.

"We are thrilled to welcome such an exceptional team of artists to Bay Street for the world premiere of Jack Canfora's FELLOW TRAVELERS," says Bay Street Theater's Artistic Director Scott Schwartz, "This play is about giants of the stage and screen, larger than life personalities who made great art and a great impact on our American culture. It is a searing portrait of extraordinary people struggling with the politics of their time and their love for one another, and I can't wait to see how this cast and creative team brings their story to vivid life."
