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
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.”
