In a Dark Dark House extends by two weeks


The MCC's world premiere presentation of In a Dark Dark House, by Neil LaBute, extends its run by two weeks, and will now play though to 7 Jul 2007.

The play opened at the Lucille Lortel Theatre on 7 Jun 2007, following previews from 16 May, and was originally scheduled to end on 23 Jun 2007.

In a Dark Dark House tells the story of two brothers who, on the grounds of a private psychiatric facility, find themselves brought face to face with each other's involvement in their traumatic past. In court-ordered rehab, Drew calls on his brother, Terry, to corroborate his story of abuse. Drew's request releases barely-hidden animosities between the two; is he using these repressed memories to save himself while smearing the name of his brother's friend and mentor?

The two siblings must struggle to come to grips with their troubled legacy, both inside and outside their dark family home.

Directed by Carolyn Cantor, In a Dark Dark House features Ron Livingston, Jason Patric and Louisa Krause.

Neil LaBute's is a prolific playwright, who's work has been staged on Broadway and London's West End. His many plays include: The Shape of Things, The Distance From Here, and The Mercy Seat.

The play features set design by Beowulf Boritt, with costumes by Jenny Mannis, lighting by Ben Stanton and sound by Rob Kaplowitz.
