The off-Broadway non-profit Vineyard Theatre has announced new details for its upcoming world premiere of Nicky Silver's new comedy This Day Forward.

Originally scheduled to begin performances in Winter 2017, the Mark Brokaw-helmed production has been brought forward and will now play its limited engagement from 3 November to 18 December 2016, with an official opening on 21 November.

The New York Premiere of new musical Kid Victory, featuring music by John Kander, book & lyrics by Greg Pierce and directed by Liesl Tommy, has in turn been pushed back and will now play from February to March 2017.

The Vineyard Theatre has also announced the creative team for This Day Forward, which features scenic design by Allen Moyer, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by David Lander, and original music and sound design by David Van Tieghem.

Synopsis: "In this new comedy about love and marriage and everything in-between, Martin thinks he has just married the girl of his dreams, but when Irene makes a surprising confession in their honeymoon suite, all their well-made plans fall apart. Nearly 50 years later, Irene's children wrestle with their past, and a mother whose secrets are quickly fading along with her memory."

Casting will be announced at a later date.

The Vineyard Theatre's 2016-2017 season will conclude with the New York premiere of Gina Gionfriddo's Can You Forgive Her? Directed by Peter DuBois, the limited run will play from May to June 2017.
