There is a moment when you want to look ahead to the future, but the past is eating you whole. In Sunday, friends gather for a book group, anxious to prove their intellectual worth, but that anxiety gets the better of any actual discussion as emotional truths come pouring out.

Running time: Approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.

“Mr. Thorne’s New York follow-up to the award-winning Broadway blockbuster Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.”

The New York Times


“The talented Mr. Thorne has staked out his own territory in the field of young, misunderstood misfits & mavericks. He specializes in relocating the everyday angst of adolescence to fantasy landscapes.”

Ben Brantley, The New York Times


“Form-bending & tender. Jack Thorne’s compassionate new play is more experimental and complex than at first blush. Exuberant dance scenes alleviate tension as they pulse with sex, play, frustration and rage, putting into movement what the characters do not say. While the play deals in the tiniest of life’s moments, sometimes that is everything.”

Nicole Serratore, The Stage

“A portrait of a generation at once galvanized & paralyzed by coming of age in a particularly terrifying world—featuring a strong, appealing ensemble.”

Sara Holdren, New York Magazine


“Atlantic Theater Company puts on their usual first class production!”

Michael Dale, BroadwayWorld


“A conversation between two lonely people proves funny, sexy & ultimately poignant. This absolutely terrific scene is beautifully acted by Scott & Jones.”

Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
