Play About the Baby

Invite

September 20 – November 2, 2003 In the Owen
Approximate running time: 1 hour and 48 minutes

Boy and Girl are a blissful young couple, living in their own private Eden. They’ve got a beautiful new baby. Or do they? The arrival of Man and Woman, with their worldly ways and verbal sparring, blurs the line between reality and fiction, and brings Boy and Girl to the edge of doubt about everything they once believed.

The London Evening Standard calls Edward Albee “America’s most daring dramatist” and says The Play About the Baby is “a treat…there’s no denying the lure of its unsettling oddness.”
