John Noble (“Sleepy Hollow”) and Hamish Linklater (“The Crazy Ones”) lead the cast of the new play by Pulitzer Prize winner Doug Wright (“I Am My Own Wife”), “Posterity,” receiving its world premiere this spring at Off Broadway’s Atlantic Theater Company.

Dale Soules, Henry Stram (currently in the Bradley Cooper topliner “The Elephant Man”) and Mickey Theis also appear in the show, about the contentious sitting sessions of Henrik Ibsen (Noble) for Norway’s top sculptor (Linklater).

“Fringe” alum Noble appeared Off Broadway in “The Substance of Fire” in the spring. Linklater is a Gotham theater veteran, with recent appearances including “Much Ado About Nothing” and “The Comedy of Errors” in Central Park.

“Posterity” begins previews Feb. 25 ahead of a March 15 opening at the Atlantic’s Linda Gross Theater.
