Pascale Roger-McKeever's solo show, Fingers & Spoons, is set for an Off-Broadway run at SoHo Playhouse, with Roger-McKeever starring.

Previews will begin April 25 ahead of an official opening May 2. Performances will continue through June 2. Tony nominee Austin Pendleton will direct.

The work follows a mid-40s mom, who accepts her husband's invitation to an open marriage and ends up on a "happily horny journey." The show features a score by Tanya Tomkins.

“I am an actor and a writer which is inevitably a confrontation with the self," Roger-McKeever said in a statement. "That's how I make sense of my life and what I start with. This latest confrontation started as a dare to write honestly about a sexual encounter that took on a life of its own. But that is just the door I happened to step through. Because sex itself is such a powerful and primal experience and probably the deepest exploration of self that most of us undertake in our lifetimes, each step I took toward it demanded that I open myself up a little further until it just seemed right to shape it into a play and step out and unto a stage—and here's the kicker: this happened at 44, while enjoying all dimensions of motherhood, so I roar, 'Age, bring it on! And go, moms!'”
