Manhattan Theatre Club's Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director), Barry Grove (Executive Producer), and Mandy Greenfield (Artistic Producer) present the world premiere of WE LIVE HERE by Zoe Kazan, directed by Sam Gold. Check out publicity shots of the cast below!
The cast features Mark Blum (After the Revolution, Twelve Angry Men), Jessica Collins (AMC's "Rubicon," Pygmalion), Betty Gilpin (MTC's That Face, The Language Archive), Amy Irving (The Coast of Utopia, Adam), Oscar Isaac (Ridley Scott's Robin Hood, MTC's Beauty of the Father), and Jeremy Shamos (Clybourne Park, MTC's Reckless).
The limited engagement will start previews Thursday, September 22 and open Wednesday, October 12 at MTC at New York City Center - Stage I (131 West 55th Street).
Allie Bateman's (Jessica Collins) wedding to Sandy (Jeremy Shamos) is Sunday. When Dinah (Betty Gilpin), her precocious younger sister, returns to their parents' (Mark Blum and Amy Irving) home for the festivities, she brings more than anyone expected: a new boyfriend (Oscar Isaac), whose hidden history resurrects passions and painful memories for the whole family. Over one emotionally charged weekend, the Batemans must acknowledge and accept loss to gain hope for regeneration. Zoe Kazan, one of New York's most acclaimed young actors, returns to Manhattan Theatre Club for her New York playwriting debut with this world premiere MTC-commissioned play - an incisive and beautifully rendered portrait of a contemporary family coming together through grief and celebration.
