Just as Juliana Smithton's research leads to a potential breakthrough, her life takes a disorienting turn. During a lecture to colleagues at an exclusive beach resort, she glimpses an enigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini amidst the crowd of business suits. One step at a time, a mystery unravels as contradictory evidence, blurred truth and fragmented memories collide in a cottage on the windswept shores of Cape Cod.
"Sudden flares of uncontrolled feeling appear like lightning flashes from a sky that was clear just moments before…Gradually our faith in this seemingly most reliable of narrators is undermined by deftly disclosed pieces of information." —NY Times. "…a haunting drama…so cleverly constructed that the nature and depth of the problem isn't revealed until the last shattering scene." —Variety. "[A] wonderful surprise…in which we the audience collectively discovered we'd been had. And that we'd liked it." —Village Voice. "Four stars…[an] engrossing new drama." —Bloomberg News. "…you can't avert your eyes from [this] slowly unfolding drama." —NY Post. "White's first major New York production…shows him as a crack craftsman who knows how to hook an audience." —NY Daily News. "White juggles the various pieces of his play with a skillful hand, folding them together with an uncanny ability to know exactly how much to give away and when." —NY Press. "[Juliana] is an unreliable narrator of the greatest sort, and…THE OTHER PLACE proceeds to rip hole after hole in her story and add mystery after mystery to her past." —Entertainment Weekly.
