Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) are pleased to announce that Charlie Cox (Netflix’s “Daredevil,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “Stardust”) and Heather Lind (AMC’s “Turn: Washington’s Spies,” “Demolition,” “Of Good Stock” at MTC) have joined the cast of Manhattan Theatre Club’s American premiere of “Incognito,” the new play written by Nick Payne (“Constellations”) and directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (“The Father,” “Doubt,” “Outside Mullingar”).

The limited engagement of “Incognito” will begin previews Tuesday, May 3 in advance of a Tuesday, May 24 opening night at MTC at New York City CenterStage I (131 West 55th Street).

Additional casting for “Incognito” will be announced in the coming weeks.

Nick Payne, the acclaimed writer who brought you the sold-out Broadway sensation “Constellations,” returns to Manhattan Theatre Club with the American premiere of “Incognito,” an “astonishing and original” new play (“The Telegraph”).

A pathologist steals the brain of Albert Einstein; a neuropsychologist embarks on her first romance with another woman; a seizure patient forgets everything but how much he loves his girlfriend. “Incognito” braids these mysterious stories into one breathtaking whole that asks whether memory and identity are nothing but illusions. Directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes, “Incognito” takes us into the last uncharted realm—the mind.

The creative team for “Incognito” features Scott Pask (scenic design), Catherine Zuber (costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), David Van Tieghem (original music & sound design), J. David Brimmer (fight director), Peter Pucci (movement direction), and Stephen Gabis (dialect coach).
