Natural Affection will officially open Sept. 26 and continue performances through Oct. 26.

Directed by TACT co-artistic director Jenn Thompson, the cast includes TACT company members Alec Beard (Lost in Yonkers, Semi-Monde), Eve Bianco (Bedroom Farce, Dandy Dick) and Victoria Mack (Happy Birthday, Venus in Fur) as well as guest artists Tobi Aremu, Chris Bert, Kathryn Erbe (The Grapes of Wrath, "Law & Order: Criminal Intent”) and John Pankow (The Iceman Cometh, "Episodes").

"In Natural Affection, a troubled young man, who, abandoned early in life by his single mother (Erbe), returns from reform school to find her now living with a lover," press notes state. "As the tension between them mounts, their fight for forgiveness and connection gives way to desperation, setting this insecure family on a collision course of reckless, heartbreaking and almost inevitable violence."

The creative team comprises John McDermott (sets), David Toser (costumes), Mary Louise Geiger (lights), Toby Algya (sound) and Lauren Madden (properties).
