WHEN IT’S YOU
Direct from the Keen Playwrights Lab
By Courtney Baron
Directed by Jonathan Silverstein
STARRING ANA REEDER
FEB 28, 2017 - APR 8, 2017
Thirty-seven, single, and having recently lost her mother to illness, Ginnifer (Obie Award winner ANA REEDER) moves back to her hometown to discover that her high school love is at the center of a violent crime. She must confront her relationship to the act of violence itself as well as her changing place in a shifting society, all while living under the roof of her dead mother’s home. Moving and deeply personal, Courtney Baron’s When It’s You is a complex and honest examination of gun violence and its ripple effects on our contemporary culture.
"(Baron's work is)...heartrending and unexpectedly funny." — New York Times
