The new play at Atlantic Theater Company explores the nature of artistic success and the fear of being forgotten.
Atlantic Theater Company has released rehearsal photos from its world-premiere production of Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Doug Wright’s play Posterity, starring Hamish Linklater and John Noble. The production begins previews on February 25 and officially opens on March 15 for a limited engagement through April 5 at the Linda Gross Theater. Wright will direct.
Posterity follows Norway’s most celebrated sculptor (Linklater) after he is commissioned to create the last official portrait of the country’s most famous writer, Henrik Ibsen (Noble). The play is described as an exploration of “the nature of artistic success and the fear of being forgotten.”
In addition to Linklater and Noble, the cast features Dale Soules, Henry Stram, and Mickey Theis. The design team will include scenic design by Derek McLane, costume design by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by David Lander, and original music and sound design by David Van Tieghem.
