Jack Canfora's new play Jericho, starring Jill Eikenberry, begins performances at 59E59 Theatres Oct. 4.



Directed by Evan Bergman, the cast also includes Andrew Rein, Noel Joseph Allain, Eleanor Handley, Carol Todd and Kevin Isola.

"In 2005, a Jewish 9/11 survivor and a Palestinian 9/11 widow find themselves embroiled in one family’s personal and political dramas," press notes state. "With surprising humor and wit, Jericho reminds us that all struggles are ultimately personal."

Eikenberry's stage credits include The Kid, Onward Victoria, Watch on the Rhine, Summer Brave, All Over Town and Moonchildren. The "LA Law" star and Golden Globe winner's TV work includes "Hill Street Blues," "An Inconvenient Woman" and "Law & Order." Her films include "Young Adult," "The Manhattan Project" and "Something Borrowed."

The production will continue through Nov. 3.

The creative team includes Jessica L. Parks (scenic design), Jill Nagle (lighting design), Michael McDonald (costume design) and John Emmett O'Brien (sound design). The production stage manager is Rose Riccardi.

Jericho is produced by The Directors Company
