Family Week - cast announced for Beth Henley's comedy

MCC Theater has announced casting for Beth Henley's dark comedy, Family Week, directed by Jonathan Demme.

The third production of MCC Theater's season, Family Week opens at the Lucille Lortel Theatre on 26 Apr 2010, following previews from 7 Apr and runs through to 23 May 2010.

The cast will features Rosemarie Dewitt and Sarah Jones. Additional casting will be announced shortly.

Family Week: A year after the death of her son, Claire checks into a recovery center in the desert, searching for a way to cope. When her mother, daughter and sister arrive to participate in 'family week,' long-dormant traumas collide with recent tragedies.

Rosemarie DeWitt�s recent Off-Broadway credits include John Patrick Shanley�s 'Danny and the Deep Blue Sea' at Second Stage and Craig Lucas� 'Small Tragedy' at Playwrights Horizons. Her film career includes playing the role of 'Rachel' in 'Rachel Getting Married' (dir. Jonathan Demme), as well as roles in 'How I Got Lost,' 'Cinderella Man' (dir. Ron Howard), 'The Great New Wonderful,' 'Blackbird,' and the upcoming Kenneth Lonergan film 'Margaret.'

Sarah Jones won two Tony Awards for her one woman show 'Bridge & Tunnel,' in which she also starred. The multi-character solo show was originally produced Off-Broadway by Oscar-winner Meryl Streep, and went on to become a critically acclaimed, long running hit on Broadway.
