The complete cast has been announced for the world premiere of The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin, presented by the Roundabout Theatre Company. Starring David Morse, Sarah Goldberg and Christopher Denham, the show begins performances on May 31 at off-Broadway’s Laura Pels Theatre, with opening night set for June 27. The limited engagement is scheduled to run through August 25.
In addition to Morse, Goldberg and Denham, the cast of Tom Durnin will include Lisa Emery as Karen Brown-Canedy and Rich Sommer as Chris Wyatt. Directed by Scott Ellis, the Steven Levenson-penned play tells the story of Tom Durnin (Morse), who did the time for his white-collar crime. Now he’s determined to win back the respect he believes he deserves—even if it means ripping apart the new life his family has so carefully put together in his absence.
Emery has appeared on Broadway in Relatively Speaking, The Smell of the Kill, The Women, Jackie, Present Laughter, Rumors, Burn This and Passion. Her off-Broadway credits include Lonely, I'm Not, Distracted, Mouth to Mouth, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Abigail's Party, Hot 'n' Throbbing, Iron and What the Butler Saw.
Sommer appeared on Broadway in Harvey. He is well known for his role as Harry Crane on the TV series Mad Men. Sommer's other TV and film credits include The Office, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Nikita, Ugly Betty and The Devil Wears Prada.
