The world premiere of a new play by Wallace Shawn

Evening at the Talk House

A reunion at the almost legendary club, The Talk House.

Still presided over by the kindly Nellie, there’s the same genteel atmosphere, the familiar drinks and the special snacks.

The playwright, the composer, the actress.
The former television star brutally beaten up.
The possibility of a pleasant night.

Just relax. Nothing has changed. These are nice people.

A disconcerting dystopian vision by Wallace Shawn, directed by Ian Rickson.

 

The world premiere of a new play by Wallace Shawn, whose last play to premiere at the National was The Designated Mourner, 1996.
