WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

It's "Body Awareness Week" on a small Vermont college campus and feminist professor Phyllis and her partner, Joyce, are hosting a male guest artist who specializes in female nude photographs. The couple is already struggling as they try to counsel Joyce's 21-year old son, Jared, an amateur lexicographer with a fondness for the OED and phone sex lines whom they believe suffers from Asperger's Syndrome. When their guest arrives, both his presence and his chosen subject matter instigate a new level of discomfort. Hailed "An engaging new comedy by a young playwright with a probing, understated voice," (The New York Times) Obie Award-winning playwright Annie Baker's Body Awareness examines the mutability of relationships and how fragile people become when they are confronted with the unexpected.
