From Off-Broadway

The Argument is a riveting new play from the co-author of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize-finalist Omnium Gatherum, Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros, which premiered at New York City's Vineyard Theatre, before a highly acclaimed revival at Theatre J in Washington DC in 2013.

Timely and resonant, The Argument chronicles the arc of a relationship between a man and a woman with bracing humor, passion, and fury. What happens when two people who say they love each other fight over something so precious that they reach a point of no return? This serious subject matter, treated with funny and gripping dialogue, is the ideal show for a small ensemble to explore socially significant and urgent issues.

"5 Stars! This extremely relevant play grips from the beginning to the end.” - DC Metro Theatre Arts

"...The Argument is Stirring and Masterfully Written.” - Broadway World
