Actor Tim Daly ’79 will star alongside his sister, Tyne Daly, in the world premiere of playwright Theresa Rebeck’s new drama, Downstairs, which will open the Dorset Theatre Festival’s 2017-18 season.

The play, which marks the first time the Daly siblings will share a stage, casts them as fictional siblings—Tim playing “a quirky, gifted man who moves into his sister’s unfinished basement, giving the siblings a chance to work through some troubled family history,” according to The Boston Globe.

The Globe included the show in its list of “42 essential arts events you won’t want to miss this spring and summer.”

Downstairs will run from June 22 – July 8 under the direction of Bennington drama faculty member Dina Janis, who has served as artistic director of the Dorset Theatre Festival for the past seven years.
