THE PLAY…

Relentlessly daring playwright Wallace Shawn returns to The New Group to continue his vibrant collaboration with Scott Elliott (Aunt Dan and Lemon, The Fever, Threepenny Opera). This comedic masterpiece of marital strife recounts the day that Marie (Marisa Tomei) finally resolves to tell her charming and impossibly positive husband Bruce (Frank Whaley) that she’s had enough.

“Each of us is granted at birth the wonderful gift of consciousness– we can think, we feel, and we try to understand things. But there’s too much going on, we are horribly confused, and in our confusion we seek greater clarity by forming a bond with another human being. The search for understanding continues, but it’s even more complicated.”
– Wallace Shawn
