New York City
Originally staged at the Circle Repertory Company in May of 1988 and featured as the kickoff to the Circle Rep’s 20th anniversary celebration, this is the first New York City revival of this work in 20 years. The Great Nebula In Orion was produced for a two-week run in 2003 at the inaugural season of the Woodstock Fringe Festival of Theatre & Song at the historic Byrdcliffe Theatre in Woodstock, NY. Pulitzer Prize winning Playwright Lanford Wilson has characterized his two-character work as "a quiet play about friendship." Both humorous and poignant, this play is the story of reunion of two 30-something college friends, who have not seen each other in six years – a fashion designer and an ex-campus activist who is now a suburban mom. In a Central Park West apartment overlooking the Planetarium, they reveal secrets, revisit wounds, share old laughs and find new ones while rekindling an important bond.
