PTP/NYC (Potomac Theatre Project), in association with Middlebury College, presents its 31st repertory season, its 11th consecutive in New York City, running now through August 6, 2017 in a limited Off-Broadway engagement at The Atlantic Stage 2, located at 330 West 16th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues. This season's line-up includes the professional stage premiere of Howard Barker's 1985 BBC film, Pity In History, directed by PTP's Co-Artistic Director Richard Romagnoli (NYIT Award nominee). The production opened last night, and BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Religion, art, class and patriotism clash in Pity In History, a riveting drama by iconoclast writer Howard Barker (No End of Blame, Scenes from an Execution). First produced as a teleplay by the BBC in 1985, Pity In History updates Britain's 17th century Civil War to present day in a sexy, brazen and remarkably funny examination of a society rife with competing ideologies.

The cast for Pity In History includes Matthew Ball (PTP: Pentecost), Jay Dunn (PTP: Serious Money), Steven Dykes (PTP: Victory, Scenes from an Execution, Vinegar Tom), Christo Grabowski (PTP: No End of Blame, Pentecost, Good), Christopher Marshall (PTP: No End of Blame, A Hard Heart), Jonathan Tindle (PTP: Scenes from an Execution, No End of Blame, Pentecost), Kathleen Wise (PTP: Vinegar Tom), Kahari Blue, Kaitlynd Collins, Toria Isquith, Sam Tompkins Martin and Connor Wright.

The production team includes Mark Evancho (Scenic Design), Hallie Zieselman (Lighting Design), Cormac Bluestone (Sound Design), Danielle Nieves (Costume Design) and Devin Wein (Production Stage Manager).
