Photo Flash: First Look at Jan Maxwell and More in PTP/NYC's THE CASTLE at Atlantic Stage 2

PTP/NYC, in association with Middlebury College, presents its 27th repertory season, its 7th consecutive in New York, running from now through August 4, 2013 in a limited Off-Broadway engagement at The Atlantic Stage 2, located at 330 West 16th Street between 8th & 9th Avenues in New York City. This season's line-up includes the New York Premiere of Howard Barker's The Castle, starring five-time Tony Award nominee and Drama Desk Award winner Jan Maxwell in her 5th collaboration with PTP, directed by PTP's Co-Artistic Director Richard Romagnoli. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Howard Barker's The Castle is an epic work, blasting apart - with humor and violence - the boundaries of desire, pain, and sexuality. After an absence of 7 years, a group of Crusaders returns 'home' to find authority, religion, and human relations all upended and a new society established by the women who have been left behind. The battle lines are drawn immediately.

The cast includes five-time Tony Award nominee and Drama Desk Award winner Jan Maxwell (Follies, Lend Me a Tenor and The Royal Family on Broadway, Victory, Scenes From An Execution and The Castle with PTP), Jennifer Van Dyck (Hedda Gabler, Dancing at Lughnasa and Two Shakespearean Actors on Broadway), David Barlow (Horizon at NY Theatre Workshop, Oroonoko with Theater for a New Audience, Victory and Scenes From An Execution with PTP), Steven Dykes (Victory with PTP and Vanya with The Wrestling School), Brent Langdon (Serious Money and The Europeans with PTP), Quentin Maré (Broadway: Rock 'n' Roll, Coram Boy, Julius Caesar), Robert Zukerman (Victory with PTP), Christina Fox, Aubrey Dube, Rachel Goodgal, Melissa MacDonald and Stephen Mrowiec.

The creative team includes Jon Craine (Set Design), Hallie Zieselman (Lighting Design), Jule Emerson (Costume Design), Cormac Bluestone (Sound Design) and Eric Conner Marlin (Stage Manager). Assistants to the Director are Matthew Ball and Sumire Doi.
