Philadelphia Theatre Company Presents Premiere of McNally's UNUSUAL ACTS OF DEVOTION With Faith Prince

Philadelphia Theatre Company's 2008/2009 Season continues tonight with the opening of the World Premiere of Terrence McNally's Unusual Acts of Devotion, directed by Leonard Foglia. The play, which began performances on October 22nd, will run through November 23rd, 2008.

On a summer evening, residents of a Greenwich Village walk-up gather on the roof to celebrate a wedding anniversary, only to confront some of the uncomfortable truths that inform their lives and relationships. Unusual Acts of Devotion looks at things done – and not done – all in the name of love.

The cast features Michael Aronov, Viola Harris, Faith Prince, Ana Reeder, and Richard Thomas
