Casting is now complete for Vineyard Theatre's upcoming New York premiere of Do You Feel Anger?, written by Mara Nelson-Greenberg and directed by Margot Bordelon, which is set to begin previews on March 13, 2019, ahead of an official opening on March 31 and a limited run through to April 20, 2019.

Jeanne Sakata takes on the roles of Janie and Sophia’s Mother and joins previously announced cast members Tom Aulino (as Old Man), Ugo Chukwu (as Jordan), Megan Hill (as Eva), Greg Keller (as Jon), Justin Long (as Howie), and Tiffany Villarin (as Sophia).

Ms. Sakata is perhaps best known for her Drama Desk-nominated solo play Hold These Truths.

Synopsis: "In this dazzling dark comedy, Sophia (played by Ms. Villarin) is hired as an empathy coach at a debt collection agency -- and clearly, she has her work cut out for her. These employees can barely identify what an emotion is, much less practice deep, radical compassion for others. As they painstakingly stumble towards enlightenment, someone keeps mugging Eva in the kitchen, and ​the unspoken dynamics of ​their seemingly blithe workplace culture become increasingly unsettling. Do You Feel Anger? reminds us that change is not always easy, and may come with unexpected costs."

The creative team behind Do You Feel Anger? features scenic design by Laura Jellinek, costume design by Emilio Sosa, lighting design by Marie Yokoyama, and sound design by Palmer Hefferan.

Do You Feel Anger? staged its world premiere at the 2018 Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville.

Vineyard Theatre is currently represented off-Broadway by the world premiere of Jeremy O. Harris' "Daddy", co-produced by The New Group. Directed by Danya Taymor, the new play stars 2-time Golden Globe nominee and Tony Award winner Alan Cumming and began previews at Pershing Square Signature Center's Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre on February 12, 2019, ahead of an official opening on March 5. The limited engagement runs through to March 31, 2019.

Do You Feel Anger? Tickets are available now for performances from March 13 through to April 20, 2019.
