The Designated Mourner
"ESSENTIAL, ILLUMINATING, AND NOT-TO-BE-MISSED! The Designated Mourner makes the definitive case for Wallace Shawn as one of the most complex and uncompromising moralists of the American theater."
– Ben Brantley, The New York Times

First New York Revival
THE DESIGNATED MOURNER
Written by Wallace Shawn
Directed by André Gregory
Featuring Deborah Eisenberg, Larry Pine and Wallace Shawn
June 21 - August 25
THE DESIGNATED MOURNER is a monologue-triptych in which three artist-intellectuals recount their experiences as their once-liberal country sinks into political crisis. A famous poet-intellectual, his daughter, and her husband—people made of very different moral fiber despite their shared highbrow interests—witness the subtle and flagrant transformations of everyday life, public affairs and personal relationships until they finally are dragged into the middle of things themselves. This searing and disturbing drama, prescient of much that occurred during the Bush/Obama years, has been called Shawn’s masterpiece.
