"Body Awareness Week" on a Vermont college campus is the setting for this smart and touching comedy about ordinary people grasping for connection. Phyllis, the organizer, her partner Joyce and Joyce's grown son Jared are hosting one of the guest artists in their home, Frank, a photographer famous for his female nude portraits. While Phyllis is outraged by Frank's photos, Joyce is intrigued enough to consider posing for Frank, sparking a firestorm that could break apart their unconventional family. The New York Times called Body Awareness "an engaging new comedy by a young playwright with a probing understated voice," and The New Yorker called the play "an impressive and occasionally beautiful meditation on the mysteries of being moved." Body Awareness was first produced Off-Broadway by the Atlantic Theater Company in May 2008.
