Chloe Sevigny to star in ‘Abigail’

Actress joins Powerhouse season

Chloe Sevigny has signed on for a stint at New York Stage and Film and Vassar College’s Powerhouse Theater this summer, starring in the latest play by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, “Abigail/1702.”

Developmental production, to be helmed by David Esbjornson (“The Lady From Dubuque”), centers on Abigail Williams, one of the accusers in the Salem witch trials and a character in “The Crucible.” Story picks up 10 years after the trials, when Abigail, who’s created a new life for herself in Boston, is confronted by a mysterious figure who dredges up her past.

Aguirre-Sacasa (“Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”) previously worked with Sevigny on “Big Love,” the HBO skein for which the scribe was a writer.

The brief staging of “Abigail/1702” runs June 27-July 8 at Powerhouse, held annually on the Vassar campus in Poughkeepsie. Further casting for “Abigail” and other Powerhouse offerings remains to be set.
