More Info

Two words set in motion award-winning playwright Sanaz Toossi’s intricate and profound New York debut: “English Only.” This is the mantra that rules one classroom in Iran, where four adult students are preparing for the TOEFL — the Test of English as a Foreign Language. Chasing fluency through a maze of word games, listening exercises, and show-and-tell sessions, they hope that one day, English will make them whole. But it might be splitting them each in half.

At Atlantic, we are committed to providing and maintaining a gathering place that is free of known hazards. In order to safeguard the health of our entire community, we are requiring proof of Covid-19 vaccinations for all employees and audiences moving forward. We will additionally require mask-wearing indoors at our theater for all audience members and staff until further notice. Click here to read more about our health and safety protocols.


For the 2021|2022 season we will be providing a contactless e-ticket experience! Your order confirmation will include a button to “view e-ticket,” which you may either print and bring with you to the theater or simply open on your mobile device. Both options will be scanned by our ushers at the door, eliminating the need to first pick up your tickets at the box office window. This will mean less physical contact, reduced box office lines, and a smoother arrival experience all around!
