NEW YORK, June 27 (UPI) -- Jenny Bacon, Gary Cole, Betty Gilpin, Julianne Nicholson and Lois Smith are to star in the world premiere of Sam Shepard's play "Heartless" in New York.

The show's producers announced the casting Wednesday for the Signature Theatre production, which is being directed by Daniel Aukin.

The staging is to run Aug. 7 through Sept. 16 in The Irene Diamond Stage at The Pershing Square Signature Center off-Broadway.

"Sally lives with her mysterious family in a cavernous home overlooking Los Angeles. When a visitor arrives, Sally's dark secrets -- and the secrets of those around her -- threaten to come into the light," a synopsis said.

Shepard's plays include "La Turista," "Paris, Texas," "Buried Child" and "True West."
