They've found their scene partners! John J. Casewell, Jr.'s new play Scene Partners has set additional cast members alongside the previously announced Dianne Wiest. Performances begin October 26 ahead of a November 12 opening at Vineyard Theatre.

Joining the two-time Oscar-winning Wiest as Meryl are Eric Berryman as Dr. Noah Drake, Johanna Day as Charlize, Josh Hamilton as Hugo, Carmen M. Herlihy as Cassie, and Kristen Sieh as Pauline.

Vineyard has also announced additional creative team members alongside previously announced director Rachel Chavkin. Scene Partners features scenic design by Riccardo Hernández, costume design by Brenda Abbandandolo, lighting design by Alan Edwards, sound design by Leah Gelpe, video and projection design by David Bengali, prop design by Andrew Diaz, hair and wig design by Leah Loukas, and video production by Anne Troup.

Scene Partners takes place in 1985, when 75-year-old Meryl decides to ditch Milwaukee for Los Angeles to become a movie star. The show follows her reinvention as well as her quest for the world to know who she really is.
