The play will have its world premiere at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor (NY) next month as part of the 2014 Mainstage Season. Scott Schwartz is directing.
Here is what Broadway World is reporting:
CONVICTION tells the story of the family of Tom Hodges, a charismatic, confident and caring teacher that students adore and parents admire. The smart, wise-cracking colleague with all the answers. The neighbor who takes care of the neighborhood. The perfect husband and father. But when a student accuses Tom of crossing a line, everything changes. This delicately balanced, beautifully nuanced new family drama digs deep beneath the surface of a happy suburban existence to explore the damage done when seeds of mistrust are planted. It asks the question — How can we live with conviction when some questions cannot be answered?
The cast includes Garret Dillahunt (“Raising Hope,” “12 Years a Slave”) as Tom; Sarah Paulson (“American Horror Story,” “12 Years a Slave”) as his wife Leigh; Elizabeth Reaser (“Twilight” films, Second Stage’s revival of “How I Learned to Drive”) as their friend Jayne; Brian Hutchinson (“Man and Boy,” “Looped”) as her husband Bruce; and Daniel Burns (“Twelfth Night”, “Shipwrecked!”) as Tom and Leigh’s son Nicholas.
The play runs from May 27 to June 15. You can find the performance calendar here.
Single tickets will go on sale on May 15, and three-play subscriptions for the 2014 Mainstage Season are already available at baystreet.org.
