Synopsis: "Amber and Tom are freshmen at Princeton University, where their experiences so far have only two things in common: drunken parties and a desire to fit in. But when they meet, their common experience becomes anything but, and their moral mettle is put to the test. Anna Ziegler's deeply felt and relevant play explores themes of intimacy and responsibility, power and provocation, privilege, and protocol."

Joshua Boone and Alexandra Socha are both reprising their roles as Tom and Amber, respectively, from the world premiere at Williamstown Theatre Festival this past summer. Mr. Boone previously appeared on Broadway in Holler If Ya Hear Me and off-Broadway in Classic Stage Company's Mother Courage and Her Children. Ms. Socha's Broadway credits include Brighton Beach Memoirs and Spring Awakening, whilst her off-Broadway credits include Fun Home at the Public Theater and Death Takes a Holiday at the Laura Pels Theatre.

The creative team behind Actually features scenic design by Adam Rigg, costume design by Paloma Young, lighting design by Yi Zhao, and sound design by Jane Shaw.

Actually Tickets are available now for performances through to December 10, 2017.
