Turning Off the Morning News
Dark. Daring. Decidedly Durang.
By Christopher Durang
Directed by Emily Mann
MUST END JUNE 3
Venue Berlind Theatre
Run Time 95 minutes, no intermission
THIS IS ONE BALLSY LITTLE PLAY. I loved every minute.
Mr. Durang has turned the fear of practically everything into a series of scalding comedies.
Ben Brantley, The New York Times
Experience a decidedly dark and daring comedy that takes hilarious aim at today’s absurd and dangerous world. Tony Award®-winning Christopher Durang is back with a new cast of eccentric characters—starting with Cliff and Salena, whose across-the-street neighbors are at best peculiar—and at worst, stark raving mad.
Turning Off the Morning News may simultaneously unnerve you and delight you. It will keep you in suspense, hysterics, and undoubtedly, in conversation, long after you leave the theater.
This play contains mature themes and potentially disturbing content, including references to gun violence and domestic abuse, sound effects of gunfire and prop guns onstage.
