A reunion. An argument. A TED Talk. Emotional mutiny. And a bond that connects four women who meet once a year for a photo shoot, chronicling their changing (and aging) selves as they navigate love, careers, children, and world events. But when these private photographs gain the potential to go public, their relationships are tested, forcing the women to confront who they are, what they've become, and how they'll deal with whatever lies ahead. Funny and evocative, 20th Century Blues questions our place in the world and in relation to one another. Multi-Obie Award winner and Tony Award nominee Emily Mann (Anna in the Tropics) directs the New York premiere of this play by Susan Miller (My Left Breast), another multi-Obie winner and winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
Afterglow is a raw one-act play exploring the emotional, intellectual, and physical connections among three men and the broader implications within their relationships.
