Annie Baker, the finest young American playwright and author of the 2010 HPT hits Body Awareness and Circle Mirror Transformation, weaves an extraordinary evening from a simple tale of three young slackers talking behind a coffeehouse. The New York Times called it "Gentle and extraordinarily beautiful." This play shared the 2010 Obie Award with Circle Mirror Transformation.
The HPT production is directed by Ken Webster and stars Jude Hickey (The Pillowman, The Lonesome West) and Joey Hood (The Atheist, bombs in your mouth) as two guys hanging out behind a coffeehouse, along with newcomer Jon Cook (Emergency Prom) as the worried barista they pull into their beautifully strange and comical orbit.
HPT has assembled a great team of designers for the production. Lighting design is by Don Day, set design by Ia Enstera, and sound and costumes by Leroy Sakowitz.
