The New York Premiere of a play by Jordan Harrison (Doris to Darlene, a cautionary valentine; Futura). Directed by Obie Award winner Anne Kauffman (The Thugs; Stunning; This Wide Night).

Katha and Ryu have become allergic to their 21st-century lives. After they meet a charismatic man from a community of 1950s reenactors, they forsake cell phones and sushi for cigarettes and Tupperware parties. In this compulsively authentic world, Katha and Ryu are surprised by what their new neighbors -- and they themselves -- are willing to sacrifice for happiness.

"Piquantly funny, cleverly executed, and darkly playful." -- Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

Featuring Trent Dawson (The Herbal Bed, “As the World Turns”); Tony Award nominee Marin Ireland (Blasted; Reasons to Be Pretty); Peter Kim (Thoroughly Modern Millie); Pedro Pascal (Some Men); Jeanine Serralles (Stunning). Directed by Anne Kauffman (This Wild Night; The Thugs).
