Amy Herzog's latest play follows a young, hip expat couple living in Belleville, a trendy Parisian neighborhood. But beneath the surface of Zack and Abby's enviable life, unrest simmers. When Abby returns home early one afternoon, she uncovers a few seemingly inconsequential surprises. These surprises continue to multiply -- as the stakes quietly but inexorably rise -- until the survival of everything and everyone teeters on the brink. Hailed by The New York Times as "thrillingly good," this chilling psychological drama asks unsettling questions about whether you can ever really "know" another person. Now David Muse directs an exciting new production at Studio Theatre. Learn More

This is a 1-man show featuring a series of related sketches and characters that involve passion and the sea. Most of the sketches are quite good, but some don't work so well. All in all, it's a fairly well done, cleverly constructed piece.
