In an artsy, small town, an unlikely collection of strangers sign up for Marty's "Adult Creative Drama" class: a recently divorced carpenter, a high school junior, a former actress, and Marty's husband. Unfolding like a charmingly funny indie film, the group plays Marty's imaginative (and sometimes awkward) theatre games. But as their relationships develop over the course of the summer, the seemingly silly games generate some real-life drama. This delightful comedy from new playwright Annie Baker landed on Top Ten lists of The New York Times and The New Yorker.
Winner of the Obie Award for Best New American Play–a beautiful comedy about how we connect. Artistic Director Sean Lewis says: “Annie Baker is maybe the most important playwright working in America right now. Her plays marry a Chekovian love of character with an American sensibility of longing to create pure magic."
