The work is set at a skin cancer clinic in NYC ("not the famous one," according to press notes) as patients wait to find out how much of themselves they're about to lose.
The production includes scenic design by Marsha Ginsberg, costume design by Enver Chakartash, lighting design by Kate McGee, and sound design by Bray Poor. Casting is by William Cantler and Destiny Lilly of The Telsey Office, and Alex H. Hajjar is production stage manager.
