Directed by Kip Fagan, who also staged Eisenberg’s previous play, Asuncion, the new production begins previews Feb. 6, with official opening set for Feb. 21 at the Cherry Lane Theatre in Greenwich Village.
Eisenberg’s character is a blocked sci-fi writer attempting to escape his problems in Poland. A 75-year-old cousin played by Redgrave latches onto him as a means of connecting with her distant American family, gradually revealing details of their complex postwar past.
An Oscar nominee for best actor for his role in The Social Network, Eisenberg recently appeared in Woody Allen‘s To Rome With Love.
Redgrave’s most recent New York stage role was in the 2010 Broadway revival of Driving Miss Daisy, opposite James Earl Jones. Her new movie Song for Marion, in which she stars with Terence Stamp, Gemma Arterton and Christopher Eccleston, premiered this month at the Toronto International Film Festival.
