About this show

Set in 1949, this play imagines the rumored love affair between famous novelist Mary McCarthy and aspiring young academic Paul de Man. Later in his life, de Man gained worldwide notoriety as the foremost American promoter of deconstruction, a concept inspired by German philosopher Martin Heidegger. Deconstruction exposes de Man's hidden past in war-torn Belgium, where he was suspected as an embezzler and Nazi collaborator.
