From the producers: In Simon Stephens’ stunning play, something is about to happen that will change one family forever. Set over the course of nine months, "On the Shore of the Wide World" is a play about love, family, Roy Keane and the size of the galaxy.
Author Simon Stephens play "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" won the Olivier Award for Best New Play 2013 and the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play. Stephens has become one of the theater’s most poignant chroniclers of everyday lives in upheaval. He has also created a series of quieter, diamond-faceted dramas in which static existences are shaken and stirred into new forms, including the two-character “Heisenberg,” seen on Broadway in 2016.
Neil Pepe directs a cast made up of Tony Award winner Blair Brown ("Copenhagen"), Odiseas Georgiadis, Peter Maloney, Mary McCann, LeRoy McClain, Tedra Millan, Ben Rosenfield , Wesley Zurick, C.J. Wilson and Amelia Workman.What's the Atlantic Theater Company?
