The Injured Party, a new comedy by Tony Award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg, will receive its World Premiere at South Coast Repertory during the 11th annual Pacific Playwrights Festival.
The Injured Party is set in a specific New York City moment -- 2005, when the art installation Cristo and Jeanne-Claude's The Gates captured the imagination of city dwellers with its 23 miles of billowing fabric in Central Park. One of the viewers was Maxine, 92 years old and enormously rich. Her grandson Seth, who studiously avoided The Gates, is not so rich, hopelessly stalled--and determined that "redistribution must commence." A bevy of inimitable New Yorkers aid and/or hinder Seth in this ingenious new comedy about family, love, art, money and ambition.
