Dirty Story

Directed by Valerie Curtis-Newton, By John Patrick Shanley

July 7, 2012 – August 25, 2012

Pulitzer Prize and Academy Award-winning playwright and screenwriter John Patrick Shanley (playwright of Doubt and screenwriter of Moonstruck) has created what seems to be another crazy, co-dependent couple prone to battles and reconciliation. Spend more time with this unlikely couple in this lively and sharp comedy, and catch the intimate turn international as lovers take sides, demand territory, and seek the support of a pot-bellied, gun-toting, cigarette-selling American cowboy and a snide British side-kick. Valerie Curtis-Newton’s bold gut-punch of a production turns itself inside out as it tackles and tickles one of the touchiest political issues on the planet.

“One of the liveliest, boldest and – against the odds – funniest studies ever of a subject that even hardcore satirists tend to approach on tiptoe.”
– New York Times
