A wildly imaginative and off-center romantic comedy by MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient, Pulitzer Prize finalist, and one of America’s hottest new playwrights, Sarah Ruhl (author of The Clean House and Eurydice).
An incessantly ringing cell phone in a café. A stranger at the next table who’s had enough. And a dead man – with many loose ends. In this quirky comedy, a woman is forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.
Price Range: $29-$45.

City Garage presents the world premiere of Opheliamachine by Magda Romanska. This bold new text conveys the complexity of a century of women’s experiences in a series of kaleidoscopic episodes.
A fierce, modern-day Ophelia is trapped in place inside the machinery that has created her consciousness, fighting to be heard. Hamlet, overwhelmed by the ceaseless flood of media, watches TV mindlessly, flipping channels with his remote control, consuming a mish-mash of human beauty and horror, a daily soup of innocence and violence. He wants to understand the world but all he can do is stare at it. The two of them are on opposite sides, between them, the Atlantic Ocean.
This smart, ruthlessly funny play, tracks Ophelia’s impossible journey to bridge that vast space. It is a postmodern tale of love, sex, porn, and politics in the fragmented world of our confused emotions and our modern, global, virtual sexuality.
“Opheliamachine embodies a profound understanding of drama, the poetic nature of the stage and the politics of aesthetics. Opheliamachine is a gorgeous new creation.”
– Anne Bogart, Director
Admission: $25.00, Students/Seniors w/ID $20.00
