Told over an eight-year timeline, a new comedy that holds the fraught power dynamics of a relationship up against the country's current shifting of patriarchal culture.
From the producers: Twenty-something and brilliant, Cat is a journalist at the top of her game: tack-sharp and ambitious, and rapidly establishing her place in the field. Until she meets Guy - magnetic, devilishly charming, and married - and the attrition begins. Charting their spiky relationship over eight years, following a rapidly changing America, Halley Feiffer's harrowing comedy sheds light on how we perpetuate our roles within a patriarchal culture, and the promise of a new paradigm.Audience Note:

PH is a long-running Off-Broadway theatre on West 42nd that develops new plays by both veteran scribes and folks just off the radish truck (admittedly, the radish truck might have made a stop at an MFA playwriting program). The shows are produced in the company's state-of-the-art venues on West 42nd Street, with production standards equal to the best of Off-Broadway....generally, nothing too conceptual or provocative, just interesting plays, well rendered.
