Four flawed but likable lower-middle-class New Yorkers interact in a touching play about learning how to stay afloat in the deep water of day-to-day living. Laced with cooking classes, swimming lessons, and a smorgasbord of illegal drugs, Jack Goes Boating is a story of date panic, marital meltdown, and the prevailing grace of the human spirit. Written by Bob Glaudini, this revival marks the 10th anniversary of the play's premiere, originally produced and directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman at LAByrinth Theater.
This play kicks off "The Empathy Initiative," the Seeing Place's yearlong commitment to addressing oppression through the power of theater. With an emphasis on the organic, edgy American style of acting developed by the Group Theatre, TSP allows audiences to experience modern classics with a deeper understanding of how they relate to the struggles we face today. With that, tickets are as low as $15 as a part of TSP's Affordable Theater Initiative, making theater accessible for all.
