About this show

Adam Rapp's Hallway Trilogy is made up of three full-length plays are set fifty years apart. Part 1, Rose, directed by Rapp, takes place on the evening of November 28th, 1953, the day following the death of Eugene O'Neill and concerns a young actress who has been struggling with severe depression (diagnosed as melancholia in those days) whose arrival in a lower east side tenement affects the lives of several of its residents. Part 2, Paraffin, directed by Daniel Aukin, is set on the first evening of the 2003 New York City blackout and concerns a married couple - a husband addicted to heroin, his pregnant wife, and his brother's unrequited love for his wife. Though it's now 50 years later, the affects of that young actress's visit are still being felt. Part 3, Nursing, directed by Trip Cullman, is set in 2053 in a disease-free New York when the tenement has been transformed into a museum where young men and women in need of cash are injected with old-fashioned diseases for the amusement of the public. On this night the air-tight glass wall fractures.
