ABOUT THIS PLAY
This is Jane.
Jane is a widow. Jane is a mother.
Jane was a poet. Jane is not okay.
You know exactly what I'm not quite talking about.
In this cryptic comedy, Jane is accompanied by her closest friends. Together they game their way into a midlife moment of doubt, filling the air with words. But nothing can drown out the disquieting sense that somebody has changed the rules.
Quirky, cult-favorite playwright Melissa James Gibson refuses to provide tidy answers or endings for Jane or her questions of what’s missing and what matters in contemporary life.
“Its confused but lovable characters are drawn with a fine focus and a piercing emotional depth… the dialogue sparkles with exchanges as truthful as they are clever… full of inventive humor and wise insight… like a sad-sweet pop song whose chorus you can’t shake.”
– The New York Times
