Direct from Broadway
Direct from its critically praised Broadway run in late 2016, this explosive drama makes its way to Los Angeles for its West Coast Premiere, with stars Mary-Louise Parker and Dennis Arndt reprising their roles. Produced by Manhattan Theatre Club, it is the second work by award-winning British playwright Simon Stephens to make it on the Great White Way, following his stomping, Tony-winning triumph, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time.
Starring in the two lead roles are Emmy and Tony winner Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds, RED) and Kenneth Walsh (Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, Twin Peaks). Parker has a fruitful relationship with MTC, having won her Tony Award in 2001 for the Broadway transfer of their production of Proof.
What is it about?
Telling the story of a bizarre, out-of-the-blue act that has life-changing repercussions for two strangers, our story starts as just just another day on a crowded London train platform. A woman named Clare approaches a much older man named Alex, whom she's never met before, and kisses him. This surprising moment sets in motion a series of events which will change both Clare and Alex's lives forever.
