From the Tony Award-winning playwright who brought us the smash Broadway hit Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, Christopher Durang returns to McCarter with his newest play and latest cast of eccentric characters. Turning Off the Morning News is a black comedy about two sets of neighbors. Cliff and Salena have just moved in; the family across the street is at best peculiar, and at worst, stark raving mad!  Should the new neighbors ignore their bizarre behavior, or invite them to dinner?
