The cast of CONVICTION production shot by Jerry Lamonica
The World Premiere of CONVICTION, May 27-June 15
The cast includes Garret Dillahunt ("Raising Hope," "12 Years a Slave")as Tom; Sarah Paulson ("American Horror Story," "12 Years a Slave") as his wife Leigh; Elizabeth Reaser ("Twilight"films, Second Stage’s revival of "How I Learned to Drive") as their friend Jayne; Brian Hutchison ("Man and Boy," "Looped") as her husband Bruce; and Daniel Burns ("Twelfth Night", "Shipwrecked!") as Tom and Leigh’s son Nicholas.
CONVICTION, May 27-June 15, tells the story of the family of Tom Hodges, a charismatic, confident and caring teacher that students adore and parents admire. The smart, wise-cracking colleague with all the answers. The neighbor who takes care of the neighborhood. The perfect husband and father. But when a student accuses Tom of crossing a line, everything changes. This delicately balanced, beautifully nuanced new family drama digs deep beneath the surface of a happy suburban existence to explore the damage done when seeds of mistrust are planted. It asks the question -- How can we live with conviction when some questions cannot be answered?
The production team includes Anna Louizos (Set Designer), Mike Billings (Lighting Designer), Jessica Ford (Costume Designer), Bart Fasbender (Sound Designer), Kathy Fabian (Props Designer), and Jessie Vacchiano (Production Stage Manager).
