The Manhattan Theatre Club has announced complete casting for the world premiere of Sarah Treem’s When We Were Young and Unafraid. Joining the previously announced Cherry Jones will be Zoe Kazan, Morgan Saylor, Cherise Boothe and Patch Darragh. The new play will have a limited engagement at the off-Broadway New York City Center – Stage 1, with performances beginning on May 21 prior to a June 17 opening.
Kazan has appeared on Broadway in A Behanding in Spokane, The Seagull and Come Back, Little Sheba and her screen credits include Revolutionary Road, It’s Complicated and Some Girls. Saylor co-stars in the Showtime series Homeland as Dana Brody. Boothe is best known for originating the role of Josephine in Ruined at MTC. Darragh has appeared on Broadway in Our Town.
When We Were Young and Unafraid is set inside an underground women’s shelter in the early 1970s—before Roe v. Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act, before women had places to turn in times of distress. Agnes (Jones) has turned her quiet bed and breakfast into one of the few spots where a woman on the run can seek refuge. But to Agnes’ dismay, her latest young runaway Mary Anne (Kazan) is having a profound influence on her teenage daughter Penny (Saylor), forcing each girl to question her destiny. And as the drums of the feminist revolution grow louder, Agnes is forced to confront her own presumptions about the people she’s been trying to help.
When We Were Young and Unafraid, directed by Pam McKinnon, will feature scenic design by Scott Pask, costumes by Jessica Pabst, lighting by Russell H. Champa, original music and sound design by Broken Chord and fight direction by Thomas Schall.
France’s Celluloid Dreams has picked up international rights to Sundance competitor Jamie Marks Is Dead and is launching sales at Filmart.
Carter Smith’s follow-up to The Ruins is a supernatural drama adapted from Christopher Barzak novel One For Sorrow.
The film centres on teenagers Adam and Gracie, played by Cameron Monaghan and Morgan Saylor, who are visited by the ghost of their recently deceased classmate, Jamie Marks (Noah Silver). Co-stars include Judy Greer and Liv Tyler.
Celluloid Dreams president Hengameh Panahi said: “We are delighted to welcome Carter Smith under our Directors’ Label.
“This is a perfect acquisition where all the elements are miraculously aligned; an amazingly singular talented director to promote worldwide, plus the immensely creative and dedicated producers Alex Orlovsky and Hunter Gray of Verisimilitude.”
Other producers include Jacob Jaffke, Omri Bezalel and Carter Smith from Verisimilitude Production, which made the film in association with Mountaintop Productions, Kings County Productions, and KGB Media.
UTA Independent Film Group negotiated the deal on behalf of filmmakers.
The feature is set in a wintry small town where the body of a teenager named Jamie Marks is found by the river. Adam, the star of his cross-country team, becomes fascinated with Jamie – a boy nobody really knew or interacted with, except occasionally to bully him.
When Jamie’s ghost begins to appear both to Adam and Gracie, the classmate who discovered the body, Adam is caught between two worlds. He has a budding romance with Gracie, but he also feels a deep connection to Jamie, who brings him closer to the world of the undead.
