Past Productions

In THE AGONY AND THE AGONY, a once celebrated playwright, down on his luck, brings the major people in his life together in a last ditch effort to connect with the human race, and get a play produced. Sexual duplicity, blackmail, and the ghost of Nathan Leopold converge on the Upper West Side as our characters – who may be short on talent but long on zeal – scratch, claw and scheme for their piece of the theatrical pie.

The Agony and the Agony Developmental Lab Production

December 8 - December 22, 2006

Written by Nicky Silver
Directed by Terry Kinney
With Victoria Clark, Michael Esper, Harry van Gorkum, Cheyenne Jackson, Nicky Silver, Marilyn Torres
