Lincoln Center Theater presents Sarah Ruhl’s newest play, How to transcend a happy marriage, directed by Rebecca Taichman.
At a dinner party in the wilds of New Jersey, George (Marisa Tomei, The Realistic Joneses) and her husband talk with a fellow married couple about a younger acquaintance—a polyamorous woman (Lena Hall, Hedwig and the Angry Inch) who also hunts her own meat. Fascinated, they invite this mysterious woman and her two live-in boyfriends to a New Year’s Eve party which alters the course of their lives.
How to transcend a happy marriage explores the boundaries of monogamy and the limits of friendship. This new work asks what happens when parents let their wild sides come out of hibernation.
