The complete cast and creative team has been set for the world premiere of the new comedy The Few, written by Samuel D. Hunter (the playwright behind last season's award-winning drama The Whale). The comedy will debut on September 28 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre at the Old Globe’s Conrad Prebys Theatre Center, with opening night ste for October 3.
New York theater alums Gideon Glick (Spring Awakening), Eva Kaminsky (The Lyons), Michael Laurence (Talk Radio) and Jenny Bacon (My Name is Asher Lev) will lead the cast, alongside the voices of 17 newcomers—all of whom hail from San Diego—who will portray “the lonely characters who place personal ads via answering machine for the play’s struggling newspaper.”
Directed by Davis McCallum, The Few follows QZ (Kaminsky), who keeps her small Idaho newspaper going by running personal ads from lovelorn truckers. When her publisher and ex-lover Bryan (Laurence) returns, the two revisit their own long haul past.
The creative team includes scenic design by Dane Laffrey, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Matt Frey, and original music and sound design by Daniel Kluger.
