Two-time Tony nominee Amy Ryan and David Schwimmer have been cast in Lisa D'Amour's previously announced play Detroit, according to The New York Times. Directed by Anne Kaufman, the show marks the first production of the 2012-13 season at off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons. Detroit is scheduled to run from August 24 through October 7, with an opening night to be held on a yet to be determined date in mid-September. No further cast or creative team has been announced.
Following a suburban couple who welcome their new neighbors over for an afternoon barbecue, Detroit examines the new friendship as they quickly spin out of control.
Ryan received Best Actress nominations for her roles in Uncle Vanya and A Streetcar Named Desire. Her other Broadway credits include The Sisters Rosensweig, The Three Sisters and The Women.
Best known for his long run as Ross Geller on TV's Friends, Schwimmer is a founder of the Lookingglass Theatre Company and has appeared in or directed many productions there. The actor appeared on Broadway in the 2006 revival of The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial.
The production will feature scenic design by Louisa Thompson, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by Mark Barton and sound design by Matt Tierney.
Playwrights Horizon's 2012-13 season will also include The Whale, The Great God Pan, The Flick, The Call and Far From Heaven.
