About This Show

Strained to the breaking point by caring for their severely disabled daughter, Emily, a wealthy New York couple weigh their own happiness against that of their child-with shocking consequences. Emily’s lyrical poetry, the bitter volleys of the couple’s disintegrating marriage, and the appraisals of the outside world frame the narrative of this insightful play. A Nervous Smile is a brutal portrait of love, lust and despair set against Belluso’s fiery brand of social satire.
