A SEASON OF CONNECTION. This year we're proud to present a season of plays celebrating the ties that bind. This fall, we present Steven Dietz's seminal play, Lonely Planet. Steven's play is a beautiful testament to the value of friendship in the midst of a crisis. In the spring, we will present A.R. Gurney's Later Life, our third Gurney play in Keen's history after producing The Dining Room in 2008 and The Old Boy in 2013. While we mourn the recent passing of our dear friend and collaborator, we are honored to be able to reunite with his deeply human characters in a story of lost love, told with Pete's singular theatrical flair. We hope you'll join us for another season at The Clurman for two intimate stories exploring our need to connect.
