The star of Netflix's Daredevil series has joined the cast of Nick Payne's new play Incognito, Manhattan Theatre Club announced on Wednesday. Heather Lind, of AMC’s Turn: Washington’s Spies, has also joined the production, which will be directed by Doug Hughes.

The limited engagement of Incognito will begin previews on May 3 ahead of its May 24 opening at New York City Center – Stage I. Additional casting will be announced in the coming weeks.

The new work from Payne — who also wrote last season's Broadway hit Constellations that starred Ruth Wilson and Jake Gyllenhaal — follows a pathologist who steals the brain of Albert Einstein; a neuropsychologist who embarks on her first romance with another woman; and a seizure patient who forgets everything but how much he loves his girlfriend.

Incognito braids these mysterious stories into a drama that asks whether memory and identity are nothing but illusions. The play will mark Cox's New York stage debut.
