Some theatre news for a change:

The New York Theater Workshop has announced Delroy Lindo, Roslyn Ruff, and Garret Dillahunt will star in its final production of the season, Naomi Wallace’s “Things of Dry Hours,” which Ruben Santiago-Hudson will direct.

The play by Ms. Wallace, the recipient of a 1999 MacArthur “genius award,” is set in Depression-era Alabama and centers on a black Sunday school teacher and Communist Party member (Mr. Lindo) and his daughter (Ms. Ruff), who end up hiding a factory worker (Mr. Dillahunt) on the run.


Preview performances begin May 22, and the opening is June 8. The production is scheduled to run through June 28.
