John Guare, Neil LaBute, et al. Pen New Works for Seven Card Draw
The program is a sequel to the 2007 show Five Story Walkup, and reunites the seven authors who contributed new plays and monologues to the original. Works include Guare's "What It Was Like," which describes life in 1970s Manhattan, when the author was living in John Lennon's former apartment and watching the city fall apart while building his own theatrical career. Another highlight is LaBute's "Totally," in which a young woman exacts an unusual revenge against her philandering mate.
