Photo Flash: Marin Ireland Leads the Cast of IRONBOUND at the Geffen Playhouse

At once humorous and heartrending, Ironbound spans 22 years to tell the story of Darja, a Polish immigrant getting by on a cleaning job, aggressive pragmatism and sheer will. In this wry drama, award-winning playwright Martyna Majok points out that sometimes survival is the only measure of success.

The cast features Christian Camargo (Penny Dreadful, The Hurt Locker), Marin Ireland (Broadway's reasons to be pretty, Amazon's Sneaky Pete) as Darja and Josiah Bania (The Good Wife) as Maks, both of whom are reprising their Off-Broadway roles in the Geffen production, and Marcel Spears (The Mayor) as Vic.

Ironbound had its world premiere at the Round House Theatre as part of the Women's Voices Theater Festival in September 2015. Nelson Pressley of The Washington Post said, "Majok writes with such energy and charisma that the play's four characters feel vivid and real." Majok's script was awarded the National New Play Network Smith Prize and the David Calicchio Emerging American Playwright Prize.

Rafaeli recently directed the Geffen's co-world premiere of Anna Ziegler's play Actually, which made its Off-Broadway debut at New York's Manhattan Theatre Club on November 14.
