Casting is set for Center Theater Group's upcoming world premiere production of Rajiv Joseph's Archduke. Directed by Giovanna Sardelli, the production begins performances April 25, opens May 7, and continues through June 4 at the Mark Taper Forum.

Archduke follows the unlikely path to terrorism as three strangers, already struggling to get by, receive a death sentence in the form of a tuberculosis diagnosis. But being young men with nothing to lose in Belgrade, 1914, makes them the perfect recruits for a secret organization looking to strike a blow in the name of Serbian nationalism.

The company, in alphabetical order, includes Josiah Bania, Stephanie McVay, Ramiz Monsef, Patrick Page, Stephen Stocking and Todd Weeks. The production has scenic design by Tim Mackabee, costume design by Denitsa Bliznakova, lighting design by Lap Chi Chu, music and sound by Daniel Kluger.
