 About the Premiere Production:


Synopsis: Two families, whose lives have been tumultuously intertwined for decades, gather in the massive library of a gaudy Fifth Avenue apartment to celebrate the nuptials of their children. Nothing goes smoothly and as the big moment approaches, the burning question is: can everyone put aside long-smoldering jealousies and deep-seated grudges and just get through the ceremony?  The Perplexed, a bitingly witty new play, reunites Tony winner Richard Greenberg with MTC’s award-winning Artistic Director Lynne Meadow (The Assembled Parties, Our Mother’s Brief Affair).


Director: Lynne Meadow

Additional funders: The Perplexed was commissioned by MTC through the Bank of America New Play Program. Production support provided by The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust
