More Info

Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Adly Guirgis takes his style to another level in this world premiere play about the harrowing, humorous, and heartbreaking inner workings of a women’s halfway house in New York City, helmed by John Ortiz (LAByrinth Artistic Director) in his Off-Broadway directing debut.

Running time: Approximately 2 hours 45 mins, including a brief intermission.

“A playwright who never met an expletive or a wounded heart he couldn’t love, Stephen Adly Guirgis returns to Atlantic with a big-cast, high-energy story of a women’s halfway house in New York.”

The New York Times

 

“Blurring lines between the sacred and profane has always been a specialty of Mr. Guirgis. He has a splendid ear for various languages of deception, and might even argue that all language is a form of deception.”

The New York Times
