Quotes & Highlights

“… beautifully conceived, confidently executed and wholly  accessible work, which is not just her finest to date but also the best new play to open Off Broadway this fall.” —The New York Times

Description

A new American comedy every bit as poetic as it is honest and revelatory. This captures forty-something life at its most vulnerable in a  narrative that charms, shocks and resonates. There is your first adult life full of hope and promise, and  then there is your second adult life when an unexpected twist or turn  drastically diverts your course. In This, five friends navigate unforeseen circumstances without a  road map. Fortunately, they have the insights and words of Melissa  James Gibson, who imbues every conversation with rhythm and grace. In her hands  language flows effortlessly with both amazing levity and profound weight, sometimes  contained in a single word as simple as “this.”

By Melissa James Gibson, Directed by Daniel Aukin, Scenic Design by Louisa Thompson, Costume Design by Jessica Pabst, Lighting Design by Matt Frey, and Original Sound Design by Matt Tierney.
