The Perplexed


Stage I



World Premiere by Richard Greenberg
Directed by Lynne Meadow

Two families, whose lives have been tumultuously intertwined for decades, gather in the massive library of a Fifth Avenue apartment to celebrate the nuptials of their children. Nothing goes smoothly and as the big moment approaches, the burning question is: can everyone put aside long-smoldering jealousies and deep-seated grudges and just get through the ceremony? The Perplexed, a bitingly witty new play, reunites Tony winner Richard Greenberg with MTC’s award-winning Artistic Director Lynne Meadow (The Assembled Parties, Our Mother’s Brief Affair).

Support for The Perplexed is provided by The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust. The Perplexed was commissioned by MTC through the Bank of America New Play Program.
