A Lie of the Mind

The cast of an upcoming revival of Sam Shepard’s 1985 play A Lie of the Mind by The New Group, which is to be directed by Ethan Hawke, was announced today. According to ArtsBeat, the cast will include Josh Hamilton (who starred in Hawke’s previous directorial effort, 2007’s Things We Want), Marin Ireland (whom our own Dan Callahan called “one of our finest young theater actresses” in his review of After Miss Julie), Deirdre O’Connell (of the extended Paywrights Horizons show Circle Mirror Transformation), and three other actors you’re more likely to remember for their film roles: Alessandro Nivola, Frank Whaley and Maggie Siff (from season one of Mad Men). The play, about a man who thinks he may have murdered his wife during a fit of blind rage, begins previews on January 29.
