Assistance: Playwrights Horizons announces cast

Playwrights Horizons (PH) have announced the full cast for their New York premiere production of Leslye Headland's comedy Assistance, opening at the company's main stage on 28 Feb 2012, following previews from 3 Feb, and closing on 11 Mar 2012.

Directed by Trip Cullman the cast will feature Michael Esper, Sue Jean Kim, Virginia Kull, Lucas Near-Verbrugghe, Amy Rosoff and Tony Award nominee Bobby Steggert (Ragtime).

Assistance: For these young assistants, life is an endless series of humiliations at the hands of their hellacious boss, a powerful uber-magnate. In rare moments of calm when the phone calls stop rolling, Nick and Nora and their traumatized co-workers question whether all their work will lead to success - or just more work.

The design team for Assistance will feature scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Ben Stanton and sound design by Jill BC Du Boff.
