A struggling suburban mom tries to keep it together and get back everything she's lost -- including her daughter -- in the new comedy-drama Bethany. With the reality of the economic meltdown hitting close to home and everything seemingly hinged on one big sale, Crystal must push her limits and ask herself just how far she's willing to go during desperate times. Written by award-winning playwright Laura Marks (Mine, Gather at the River), Bethany premiered off-Broadway to great acclaim. Learn More

Great examination of our relationship to art, no matter who we are, in the core story. Good cast and staging. The only weakness comes in the final scene, in which it becomes clear the playwright really didn't know how to end the narrative and it just meanders to a flat close. But overall, worth seeing: humorous, dramatic and thought-provoking (without being heavy handed) on what "art" means.
The show’s running time is one hour and 30 minutes and includes one intermission.
This play contains brief nudity. (“Blink and you’ll miss it,” ACT assures us.)
