This world premiere production will be directed by award-winning theater artist and Bosnian émigré Tea Alagic.

Don't miss Campbell Scott, returning for a limited time only, as Augustine Early in The Atheist at Culture Project!

Written by Ronan Noone (named Best Young Playwright by Boston Magazine,) The Atheist is a bawdy, raucous, one-man tour-de-force that stars one of the most exciting actors of our time!

In The Atheist, Campbell Scott (whose numerous film credits include The Secret Lives of Dentists, Roger Dodger, and ABC's "Six Degrees") plays Augustine Early, a crooked journalist who'll do anything -- exploitation, blackmail, you name it! -- to make front-page news. When Augustine turns a prominent local politician's tawdry and illegal habits into front- page news, the scandal threatens to destroy the one person he thought was immune -- himself.

The Atheist arrives at Culture Project on the heels of the sold-out run at The Williamstown Theatre Festival. Tickets for the sneak peek performance at Culture Project in May, sold out in just a week!

Performances start October 7 at the Barrow Street Theater (27 Barrow Street) in the West Village.

We're offering friends of Culture Project a special opportunity to buy tickets at only $35 (tickets regularly $45), but you must act quickly!

YOU MUST BUY DISCOUNTED TICKETS BY SEPTEMBER 8
AND USE CODE CPB35ERL
TO GET $10 OFF TICKETS
TO CULTURE PROJECT'S HOT NEW SHOW!

GET YOUR EARLY BIRD SAVINGS NOW!

BUY YOUR TICKETS HERE OR CALL 212-352-3101.

"...deeply, painfully funny." Boston Globe

"Campbell Scott delivers a beguiling and taut performance" CurtainUp
