I’m Gonna Pray for You So Hard

by HALLEY FEIFFER

directed by TRIP CULLMAN

Atlantic Stage 2

January 7 – March 1, 2015


This daring and irreverent new play pulls the audience into the middle of a deeply complicated relationship and sheds new light on the eternal struggles of parents and children to find common ground.

More Info

Ella is a precocious and fiercely competitive actress whose sole aim in life is making her famous playwright father David proud. Over the course of a boozy, drug-fueled evening, Ella and David deliberate over whether to read the reviews of her Off-Broadway debut… and things unravel from there.

We’re thrilled to welcome Halley Feiffer back to Atlantic with her dark, probing and very funny new play on our Stage 2.

I’m Gonna Pray For You So Hard was developed during a residency at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s National Playwrights Conference in 2014 (Executive Director, Preston Whiteway; Artistic Director, Wendy C. Goldberg).

Reviews

“Bone-chilling! A potently acted, punishing drama by Halley Feiffer. Played with lacerating intensity by Reed Birney! Director Trip Cullman keeps the pace taut and elicits precise work from both actors!”

the new york times

“One of the best plays I’ve seen this season! Provocative, sensitive, shocking. The writing is polished and probing! A tense thriller that left me shaking! Betty Gilpin and Reed Birney are electrifying!”
