Director's Note

I adore A.R. Gurney’s plays, so when I was invited to direct two world premiere one-acts that would be performed in repertory in two different spaces within their theatre, I was ecstatic. This was also an opportunity to collaborate with New York City’s Flea Theater (which was positioned as a creative space for risk-taking and experimentation) as well as the Flea’s resident acting company, the “Bats” on one of the plays, Ajax

This was the final show to be produced at the Flea Theater’s White Street home before moving to their current TriBeCa space.
