About This Show

Karen is attractive, garrulous, and full of life. She has a new
job, a new apartment, and a violent past that refuses to leave her alone. Alvin is shy, cerebral, and reserved. He writes about history and has seen all he wants to of the present. On adjacent balconies, these two neighbors share their separate isolations, help one another to see the obstacles they have denied, and eventually discover a system through which they can, together, safely navigate their treacherous urban landscape.

First produced in the early 90’s, Wil Calhoun’s The Balcony Scene speaks more vividly today to the choices that confront all of us in a world that has grown more dangerous as our perceptions and conceptions of security becomes deeply challenged. Tim Farrell directs for the Transatlantic Theatre Company.
