WP Theater has announced that Kavi Ladnier and Sendhil Ramamurthy will star as Layla and Imran, respectively, in the world premiere of Hatef**k, written by Rehana Lew Mirza and directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt.

Mr. Ramamurthy and Ms. Ladnier previously starred together in the popular NBC series "Heroes," as leading character Mohinder Suresh and guest role Mira Shenoy, respectively. Mr. Ramamurthy's other notable TV credits include Dr. Panthaki in "New Amsterdam," Paul Hammond in "Reverie," Nikhail Julian in "Stan Lee's Lucky Man," Gabe Lowen in "Beauty and the Beast," and Jai Wilcox in "Covert Affairs."

Hatef**k begins previews at WP Theater on March 3, 2019, ahead of an official opening on March 13 and a limited engagement through to March 31, 2019.

Synopsis: "Passions ignite when Layla, an intense literature professor, accuses Imran, a brashly iconoclastic novelist, of trading in anti-Muslim stereotypes. But as their attraction grows into something more, they discover that good sex doesn’t always make good bedfellows. Conflicting cultural identities collide in this thornily clever antidote to a “meet-cute” romance."

The creative team behind Hatef**k features scenic design by Anshuman Bhatia, costume design by Sarita Fellows, lighting design by Barbara Samuels, and sound design by Joanna Lynne Staub.

Hatef**k is presented by WP Theater and Colt Coeur.
