FEATURES / CONTAINS

Unit Set/Multiple Settings

Martha has cancer and demands attention. Danny doesn't want to deal. Thomas has things he'd like to forget. Steven loves too much. Susan feels betrayed. Martin is confused. And Ian wants to know what death is really like. Standing at the intersection of death, desire, memory and disease, how can we reasonably articulate our own pain in the face of another's suffering? Maybe it's just easier to read a book. And have a sandwich.
"…a coolly thoughtful and taut meditation by the stylish playwright Mark Schultz…Mr. Schultz writes with a miniaturist's sense of scale. Following the lead of Mamet and Albee, he prunes his dialogue to one- and two-word sentences (pronouns are the first to go) and builds deceptively complex exchanges out of short, punchy scenes." —NY Times. "A moving comedy-drama blessed with a splendid production…Schultz creates a quirky, occasionally funny threnody on the painful uncertainties of life and the lure and mystery of death." —BackStage. "Shrewd and funny." —Village Voice. "[Schultz] has a biting disregard for self-pity and a paradoxically spectacular grasp on grief." —Time Out NY.
