Tickets are now on sale for the world premiere of A.R. Gurney's new comedy Heresy, starring Kathy Najimy and Annette O’Toole. Directed by Jim Simpson, the show is now playing a limited engagement off-Broadway at the Flea Theater through November 4.
In addition to Najimy (Sister Act) and O’Toole (TV's Smallville), Heresy will star Reg E. Cathey (The Wire), Ariel Woodiwiss (It's a Wonderful Life) and Steve Mellor (Nixon’s Nixon). The cast also features newcomers Tommy Crawford and Danny Rivera and members of The Bats, The Flea’s resident company of actors.
Set in the near future, Mary (O'Toole) and Joseph (Mellor) have come to Homeland Security because their protesting son, Chris, has been taken into custody during the latest crackdown. They put their case before Pontius Pilate (Cathey) and comedy ensues.
