The Atheist

starring Campbell Scott

written by Ronan Noone
directed by Justin Waldman

Campbell Scott (whose numerous film credits include The Secret Lives of Dentists, Roger Dodger, and ABC's Six Degrees) returns for a limited time only as Augustine Early in The Atheist, on the heels of a sold-out run at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. Tickets for the sneak-peek performance at Culture Project in May sold out in just one week!

In this hilarious play, Campbell Scott plays a crooked journalist who will do anything to make news. When Augustine turns a prominent local politician's tawdry tastes into a front page headline, the scandal backlashes with shocking consequences. Don't miss the chance to see Campbell Scott in this smash hit performance!

The Atheist was written by Ronan Noone, named Best Young Playwright by Boston Magazine.
