Show Description:
Magic realism collides with manic vaudeville in this family drama with a chewy metaphysical core by Noah Haidle, one of America’s most exciting and daring young playwrights.

With a nod to OUR TOWN, a man named Footnote acts as our guide for the evening. In vitro, twin boys discuss philosophy while awaiting their birth. Their sister, Beauty eats dirt and doesn’t speak, and Father is about to drive away and never return, leaving pregnant and dreamy Mother alone to live out Grandfather’s notion that “every love story is a tragedy, because its ending is built into its beginning.” And that’s just the first act.

Whipping from astonishing tenderness to profound humor and back again, this wholly original play uncovers the extraordinary family connections that span and warp across the years and generations, but can never quite be broken.
