Lincoln Center Theater/LCT3 announced today the world premiere production of DAPHNE, a new play by Renae Simone Jarrett, directed by Sarah Hughes, which will run for six weeks only at the Claire Tow Theater.

DAPHNE will feature Jasmine Batchelor, Denise Burse, Naomi Lorrain, Keilly McQuail, and Jeena Yi.

Daphne (Jasmine Batchelor) has left the city to live with her girlfriend Winona (Keilly McQuail) in the woods, and things in the house are beginning to sour. As the days slip through her fingers and a series of unsettling incidents make her question the boundaries of her reality, a strange transformation takes hold of Daphne’s body. DAPHNE is a surreal and moving new work about the stories we tell ourselves, and the moments we’re forced to choose between difficult truths and comfortable illusions.

DAPHNE will have sets by Maruti Evans, costumes by Oana Botez, lighting by Stacey Derosier, and sound by Sadah Espii Proctor.  Kara Kaufman is the Stage Manager.

DAPHNE will begin previews Saturday, October 7 and will run for 6 weeks only through Sunday, November 19. Opening Night is Monday, October 23 at LCT3's Claire Tow Theater. On-sale information to be announced.
