Second Stage Theatre (2ST) has now announced complete casting for the world premiere of Dick Scanlan and Sherie Rene Scott's new play Whorl Inside A Loop, directed by Michael Mayer and Dick Scanlan, at off-Broadway's Tony Kiser Theatre from 4 August 2015 to 20 September 2015.

Joining previously announced (and co-author) Sherie Rene Scott will be Derrick Baskin, Nicholas Christopher, Chris Myers, Ryan Quinn, Daniel J. Watts, and Donald Webber, Jr.

Synopsis: "A well-regarded actress agrees to teach six inmates how to tell their stories behind the bars of a men's maximum security prison. Sharing intimate and sometimes hilarious details of their former lives, this unlikely group forms a bond - even as the actress' life outside spins out of control. And when what happens in prison doesn't stay there, no one is sure who to trust. Whorl Inside A Loop explores the fine line between convicted felons and the criminal inside each of us, the viability of forgiveness and the unreliability of redemption."

The team of Sherie Rene Scott, Dick Scanlan and Michael Mayer previously teamed up together for the Roundabout Theatre company production of 'Everyday Rapture' at Broadway's American Airlines Theatre in 2010, which earned Tony nominations for Best Book of a Musical and Best Actress in a Musical (for Scott).

Sherie Rene Scott also earned a Tony nomination for Best Actress in a Musical in 2005 for 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.' Other Broadway credits include 'Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown,' Disney's 'The Little Mermaid,' 'Aida,' 'Rent,' 'Grease,' and 'The Who's Tommy.' Her off-Broadway credits include 'Everyday Rapture,' 'Landscape of the Body,' 'Debbie Does Dallas,' and 'The Last Five Years.'
