MTC’s EQUIVOCATION Starts Previews Tonight

MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUB’S

EQUIVOCATION

STARTS PREVIEWS TONIGHT

NEW YORK PREMIERE OF BILL CAIN PLAY, DIRECTED BY GARRY HYNES

TO OPEN TUESDAY, MARCH 2

The Manhattan Theatre Club production of EQUIVOCATION by Bill Cain (former artistic director of Boston Shakespeare Company), directed by Tony Award winner Garry Hynes (Translations, Beauty Queen of Leenane) starts previews tonight at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street) in preparation for a Tuesday, March 2 opening night.

The cast features Remy Auberjonois (The Country Girl, Frost/Nixon), Michael Countryman (Mary Stuart, MTC’s House and Garden), David Furr (MTC’s Accent on Youth, Cymbeline), John Pankow (Twelve Angry Men, “Mad About You”), Charlotte Parry (Coram Boy, The Real Thing), and David Pittu (What’s That Smell?, Tony nominee for MTC’s LoveMusik).
 
Bill Cain’s new play set in 1606 England begins when King James’ right hand man (David Pittu) commissions William Shakespeare (John Pankow) to write a new play about the Gunpowder Plot, a recent failed attempt to blow up Parliament and the Monarchy. EQUIVOCATION is a bold new look at the greatest playwright ever in a drama whose contemporary parallels are unmistakable and whose laughter is abundant – a work of startling revelations and vibrant theatricality.
