Photo Flash: Ford the River for a First Look at THE OREGON TRAIL at Fault Line Theatre

Fault Line Theatre presents THE OREGON TRAIL, a new play written by Bekah Brunstetter ("This Is Us," Be A Good Little Widow) and directed by Geordie Broadwater (The Flies, And to the Republic). THE OREGON TRAIL began previews on January 13, 2017 at WP Theater (2162 Broadway at 76th Street, New York, NY 10024), with an opening night currently scheduled for January 22, 2017. THE OREGON TRAIL will run through February 12, 2017. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

It's 1997. Alone in her computer lab, 13-year-old Jane finds her escape from the awkward throes of puberty by joining her sister and her unattainable high school crush in a covered wagon headed west on "The Oregon Trail." Under the guidance of the all-powerful Voice of the Game, we watch "Then Jane" and her family navigate the deadly perils of 1850s frontier life, while present day Jane navigates the different but all-too-real dangers of high school, college, and eventually adulthood. Jane soon finds herself in her 20s, unemployed and battling an undefinable lifelong depression, even as "Then Jane" continues to face the tribulations of the trail. With nearly two centuries between them, both Janes face hardships that seem impossible to overcome-until they find one another.

THE OREGON TRAIL stars Liba Vaynberg (Scheiss Book), Laura Ramadei (Wyoming, Exit Carolyn), Reynaldo Piniella (The Death of the Last Black Man...), Emily Louise Perkins (I Will Look Forward to this Later) and Jimmy King (From White Plains).

Scenic design is by Tristan Jeffers (Breathing Time), with lighting design by John Eckert(From White Plains), sound design by Chad Raines (At The Table), and costume design by Izzy Fields (The Faire). THE OREGON TRAIL is produced by Melanie Hopkins. The stage manager is Jenny Kennedy.
