Manhattan Theatre Club presents the American premiere of Linda, the new play by Penelope Skinner (The Ruins of Civilization at MTC, The Village Bike) directed by MTC’s award-winning Artistic Director Lynne Meadow (The Assembled Parties, Wit). 

Linda Wilde has it all. She's an award-winning senior executive in the cosmetics industry as well as a busy wife and mother. But when she pitches a marketing campaign that’s about recognizing beauty in women of a certain age, she finds herself instantly fighting for her own relevance as every part of her carefully considered life starts to show cracks. This timely, moving and fiercely funny new play by Penelope Skinner (last season's acclaimed The Ruins of Civilization) arrives at MTC in a new production directed by MTC Artistic Director Lynne Meadow after a much buzzed-about run at London's Royal Court Theatre. 

The cast of Linda features Olivier Award winner Janie Dee (Alan Ayckbourn's Comic Potential at MTC, Hand To God in the West End) in the title role; Meghann Fahy (Next to Normal, Lost Girls at MCC) as Stevie; Molly Griggs (Ultimate Beauty Bible, Where Have You Gone at Williamstown) as Amy; Jennifer Ikeda (Vietgone and Top Girls at MTC) as Alice; Maurice Jones (The Cherry Orchard at Roundabout, Troilus and Cressida at the Delacorte) as Luke; Donald Sage Mackay (stop.reset.at Signature Theatre, "Scrubs," "Modern Family") as Neil; Molly Ranson (Fish in the Dark, Bad Jews at Roundabout, Carrie at MCC) as Bridget; and John C. Vennema (The Freedom of The City at Irish Repertory Theatre, "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," "Boardwalk Empire") as Dave.

The creative team for Linda includes Walt Spangler (scenic design), Jennifer Von Mayrhauser (costume design), Jason Lyons (lighting design), Fitz Patton (sound design), Rocco DiSanti (video design), and Ben Furey (dialect coach).
