Little Mermaid Bookwriter’s Newest Play

The Atlantic Theatre announced casting for its upcoming 2015 premiere of a new play by Little Mermaid book writer (and Pulitzer Prize winner) Doug Wright.

In Posterity, ‘Norway’s most celebrated sculptor ([Hamish] Linklater) is commissioned to create the last official portrait of the country’s most famous writer, but Henrik Ibsen ([John] Noble) proves to be an irascible, contentious sitter, as the two men wage war over both his legacy and his likeness. Doug Wright explores the nature of artistic success and the fear of being forgotten.'”
