Karen Lynn Gorney, star of the movie "Saturday Night Fever" and "All My Children" joins the cast as Eyphah in Under the Knife: A Farce, a brand new comedy by Peter Zachari premiering at Theater for the New City, now through April 5, 2015. Scroll down for a first look at the cast onstage!

Gorney is joined by Peter Zachari as Roe, Lori Funk as Marcia/Deidre, Joey Mirabile as Budd, Itanza Wooden as Cora, Scott Ahearn as Roy, Katelyn Collins as Bernadette and Brian A. Simmons as Shadow.

Due to financial woes, The Mount Canyon Gynecological Medical Group could go under. In deep debt, Dr. Roe Wade allows a broker to rent two offices, one to a dentist, the other to a pair of plastic surgeons. But! One of those plastic surgeons turns out to be his ex-wife, Marcia, and the dentist is his long-time mistress, Deidre-who, after plastic surgery, bears a striking resemblance to Marcia the ex (although she doesn't know it.) Both women expect financial help from Roe: one for alimony, the other to help find her long-lost child. Then Marcia and Roe's son Budd arrives to ask for help to pay for his wedding to Bernadette, a pro-life activist. Budd works hard to prevent his girlfriend from learning about his father's controversial occupation. Add to the mix a wacky receptionist, a forgetful Holocaust survivor and a treasure trove of other characters and you get a colorful blast of mayhem in Under the Knife: A Farce.

Tickets are $15 and are available online at www.theaterforthenewcity.net and by phone at (212) 254-1109. Student and senior discounts are also available. Theater for the New City is located at 155 1st Avenue, New York, NY 10003.
