Paddy Chayefsky's 1954 play about an intergenerational romance is surprisingly relevant.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
From three-time Academy Award-winning screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky (Network, Marty and The Hospital) comes Middle of the Night, a comedy about a May-December romance in 1950's New York City. When an older Jewish widower and a young gentile bride of another man meet and fall in love, their relationship throws their disapproving families into a tizzy. This long lost gem from "the poet laureate of the romantically underprivileged" (Theatre Arts) explores "average people…fumbling for the comfort of sheer companionship." (The New York Times).
