Emmy and Obie Award winner Laurie Metcalf (Jackie on the 90s TV show "Roseanne") plays Juliana Smithton in a show the New York Times says is "dominated by a compelling, at times scarily intense performance from Laurie Metcalf." Metcalf stars opposite Dennis Boutsikaris, who plays Juliana’s husband, Ian Smithton, as well as Aya Cash, and John Schiappa, known only as The Woman and The Man, respectively. Directed by Joe Mantello, and written by Sharr White, "The Other Place" is told from Juliana’s perspective, resulting in a jumbled, often fragmented, presentation of reality.
