The Age of Innocence
In a small museum in LA surrounded by raging wildfires, a couple publicly announces their breakup to a sold-out crowd. Inspired by the real-life public breakup announcement made by television writer-director Jill Soloway and poet Eileen Myles and by the Edith Wharton novel of the same title, the play is a comedic take on identity, gender, and love at a certain age.
This production contains adult language and themes. Theatrical haze and strobe lighting effects will be used.
