Atlantic Theater Company has revealed initial casting for its previously announced US premiere of Alice Birch's Anatomy of a Suicide, directed by Obie Award winner Lileana Blain-Cruz, which will now begin previews on February 1, 2020 (instead of January 30) at the Linda Gross Theater, ahead of an official opening on February 18 and a limited run through March 15, 2020.

The cast of Anatomy of a Suicide includes Celeste Arias (as Anna), Jason Babinsky (as Tim, Toby, Steve & Mark), Gabby Beans (as Bonnie), Ava Briglia (as Daisy, Anna & Child), Carla Gugino (as Carol), Julian Elijah Martinez (as Jamie), Jo Mei (as Jo, Laura & Lola), Vince Nappo (as Dan, Felix, Dave, Luke & Nick), and Miriam Silverman (as Emma, Karen, Daisy, Esther, May & Diane). Additional casting will be announced shortly.

Synopsis: "Three generations of women. Their lives play out simultaneously. For each, the chaos of what has come before brings a painful legacy. Anatomy of a Suicide is a revelatory exploration of mothers and daughters."

The creative team features scenic design by Mariana Sanchez, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by Jiyoun Chang, and projection design by Hannah Wasileski.

Currently playing at the Linda Gross Theater, Atlantic's world premiere of Halfway Bitches Go Straight to Heaven, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Adly Guirgis and directed by Obie Award winner John Ortiz, continues its limited run through January 5, 2020.
