Harper Regan

Written by Simon Stephens
Directed by GAYE TAYLOR UPCHURCH

 

Linda Gross Theater
September 19 – October 28, 2012


Atlantic is thrilled to welcome back Simon Stephens and Gaye Taylor Upchurch, the playwright and director of last season’s acclaimed production of Bluebird starring Simon Russell Beale. Stephens has emerged as one of the most renowned and prolific playwrights in his generation in the UK, and has won the Olivier Award for Best New Play for On the Shore of the Wide World in 2005.

More Info

In Harper Regan, which premiered in 2008 at the National Theatre in London, we are folded into an absorbing story about a woman who explores the limits of loyalty, morality and the bonds of family. One strange evening, Harper Regan decides to walk away from her husband, her daughter and her home. She tells no one where she’s going or whether she’s ever coming back. She tosses family, history and fate straight up in the air, and it looks like she might be gone for good.

Reviews

New York Times Critics Pick Logo

 

“Sharp and melancholy. An odyssey that seems to embrace all the essential primal acts of life and death, of sex and violence. Ms. Upchurch positions her actors with a strategic exactitude that also seems remarkably organic. You may find yourself feeling a bit the way you do looking from the window of an airplane, when fragmented landscapes acquire the symmetry of a patchwork quilt.

Ben Brantley, THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Director Gaye Taylor Upchurch creates a permanent sense of tension through slightly surrealistic vignettes and mindful restraint by the excellent ensemble cast. Simon Stephens is an expert at conveying the defining moments that can occur in ordinary conversations.”

Jennifer farrar, associated press

 

“A splended cast of 11 make each stop on Harper’s journey of self-discovery a gem.”
