A major disaster in Manhattan has everyone on the island looking for high ground. For Danny’s family and friends, that higher ground happens to be her one-bedroom apartment in Inwood. As the world outside  goes to pieces, Danny tries to keep the peace among the assorted characters gathered in her space. They might make it through this crisis, if they can manage to survive each other.

Overactive Letdown
by Gina Montét

World Premiere

Previews: 3/24/22 & 3/25/22

Run: 3/26/22-4/10/22

Directed by Margaret Ledford

Married and in love, Christine and Mark are eagerly expecting their first child, but the reality of bringing baby home is filled with the unexpected. Problems go deeper than diapers when Mark takes on extra work and Christine escapes the monotony of life-at-home by binge-watching streaming services. Soon, exhaustion, surging hormones, and her anxious mind create a perfect storm, sweeping Christine in and out of the dream worlds of the movies she loves. As her fantasies take over, reality blurs, and nothing is quite as it seems in this exciting portrayal of motherhood and life after birth. 

This dark-comedic thriller from a local playwright was a hit at our 2020 New Play Festival!
