PERFECT ARRANGEMENT

Entertain covertly. February 22-March 18, 2018

Winner of the 2014 American Theatre Critics Association Osborn Prize

1950. Georgetown. Washington, D.C. As the Red Scare looms large, two State Department employees, Bob and Norma, receive orders to expose “moral turpitude” within the government. But, the coworkers are both gay and have married each other’s partners, Millie and Jim, in a picture-perfect façade of domestic, mid-century bliss separated, literally, by a shared closet door. Inspired by true stories of social survival, this bubbly cocktail party-meets-TV sitcom simmers into poignant realism as the four mates face exposure and a future more gray than Technicolor.

presented by special arrangement with Samuel French

“The journey of Perfect Arrangement started with The Process Theatre’s workshop production in a storefront space on Spring Street – on a good night we had twenty people in the audience. Now, after productions in nineteen states and an off-Broadway run, it feels so great to bring it back home.”
