Dusk Rings a Bell at Atlantic's stage 2




Atlantic Theater Company will present the world premiere of Stephen Belber’s play Dusk Rings a Bell, directed by Sam Gold, as the final Stage 2 production of its 2009-2010 season. The drama will open at Atlantic's Stage on 27 May 2010, following previews from 19 May and running through to 20 Jun 2010.

The cast and creative team is still to be announced.

Dusk Rings a Bell: Molly and Ray unexpectedly meet 25 years after a one-afternoon adolescent fling. She has a successful media career; he owns a small landscaping business. Both begin to romanticize their chance reunion, but a renewed connection is disrupted when Ray reveals the sordid details of a crime that left him incarcerated for ten years. Their encounter reveals two vastly different paths taken and two lonely souls attempting to reclaim a moment of possibility, when they were young and perhaps at their very best.

Playwright and screenwriter Stephen Belber makes his Atlantic debut with the world premiere of Dusk Rings a Bell. He has been represented on Broadway with the world premiere of his play 'Match' starring Frank Langella. His hit Off-Broadway play 'Tape' has been produced in New York, Australia, Germany, Canada, Greece and Japan and was made into a feature film starring Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman.

Sam Gold also makes his Atlantic debut. He most recently directed Annie Baker’s play 'Circle Mirror Transformation' Off-Broadway and will direct her new play 'The Aliens' this spring.
