From Off-Broadway

David Adjmi is the 2010 recipient of the Whiting Award for Drama
The war in Vietnam is over and Brad, an ex-serviceman, lands in L.A. to start a new life. When he winds up trashed in Connie and Linda’s kitchen after a wild night of partying, the three strike a deal for an arrangement that has hilarious and devastating consequences for everyone. Inspired by 1970s sitcoms, 1950s existentialist comedy, Chekhov and Disco anthems, 3C is a terrifying yet amusing look at a culture that likes to amuse itself, even as it teeters on the brink of ruin.

REVIEWS

"Mr. Adjmi is one of several adventurous young playwrights now ... who rather than avoiding clichés are embracing them to find out what enduring truths and lies still lurk beneath their threadbare exteriors. Sometimes, as in Mr. Adjmi’s “3C”, this can bear revelatory dividends." - The New York Times

"FOUR STARS! CRITICS PICK. Bitterly funny and inventive...Adjmi’s script, quick-cutting from dopey to deranged in seconds, is intensely funny and unnerving in equal measure." - Time Out New York

"
TOP 10 OF 2012Sitcom farce returned as tragedy in David Adjmi’s hilarious and discomfiting vivisection of fear and loathing..." - Time Out New York

"
Sharp edged, discomfiting...funny and clever." - Associated Press

"TOP 10 OF 2012. Sharp, darkly hilarious... one of the best productions of the season, and one of the saddest." - New York Post

3C received its world premiere production at Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre (w. Piece by Piece Productions) in 2012 under the direction of Jackson Gay.
