Photo Flash: In Rehearsal with Atlantic Theater's 'GHOST STORIES' Double Bill

Atlantic Theater Company's revival of Ghost Stories: The Shawl and Prairie du Chien presents two haunting short plays by Atlantic co-founder and Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet. Ghost Stories: The Shawl and Prairie du Chien will begin previews Wednesday, May 27, officially open Tuesday, June 16 and play a limited engagement through Sunday, June 28 Off Broadway at Atlantic Stage 2 (330 West 16th Street). BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the team in rehearsal below!

Directed by Atlantic Founding Company Member Scott Zigler, Ghost Stories: The Shawl and Prairie du Chien will feature Nate Dendy, Jim Frangione, Arliss Howard, Henry Kelemen, Jordan Lage, Mary McCann, Jason Ritter and Dereks Thomas.

The Shawl is the story of bereaved woman (McCann) who consults a small-time mystic (Howard) for guidance. As the mystic, assisted by his apprentice (Ritter), collects clues to make contact with the dearly departed, will he help this woman through her grief, or merely help himself?

In Prairie du Chien, a railroad car speeding through the Wisconsin night is the setting for a story of obsessive jealousy, murder and suicide, punctuated by a friendly card game that explodes into a moment of menace.

Ghost Stories: The Shawl and Prairie du Chien will feature scenic design by Lauren Helpern, costume design by Linda Cho and lighting design by Jeff Croiter.
