Blood From a Stone at the Acorn Theatre from 13 Dec

The New Group's world premiere of Tommy Nohilly's Blood From a Stone, currently in previews, as extended its run by two weeks and will now play through to 19 Feb 2011.

Directed by Scott Elliott, this Off-Broadway debut by playwright Tommy Nohilly features Gordon Clapp, Ann Dowd, Thomas Guiry, Ethan Hawke, Natasha Lyonne and Daphne Rubin-Vega.

The creative team features set design by Derek McLane, costumes by Theresa Squire, lighting by Jason Lyons and sound by Bart Fasbender.
