THIS WIDE NIGHT Receives Rave Review in The New York Times

The American premiere of Chloe Moss’ THIS WIDE NIGHT, starring Edie Falco and Alison Pill and directed by Anne Kauffman, opened last night at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre. Below is Ben Brantley’s rave review in The New York Times.

“Two actresses at the TOP OF THEIR GAME. Though it’s running time is less than an hour and a half, I could have raptly watched for another hour or so.”

Two Ex-Cellmates Disoriented by Time
By Ben Brantley, THE NEW YORK TIMES
May 17, 2010

Even without reading Einstein, anyone who lives past the age of 2 figures out that time and space are relative. (When did my bedroom shrink? How did last year disappear so fast?) But rarely do you get to see this law of physics demonstrated with the artistry and emotional impact that Edie Falco and Alison Pill bring to it in “This Wide Night,” Chloë Moss’s deceptively slim two-character play at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater.

On the surface, very little happens in this Naked Angels production, which opened on Sunday night. The most eventful chapters in the existences of Lorraine (Ms. Falco) and Marie (Ms. Pill), former cellmates who meet again in London, are probably in the past, an idea that clearly haunts them. Yet as directed by Anne Kauffman and performed by two actresses at the top of their game, “This Wide Night” feels more packed with complex, compressed life than a season of television crime dramas.

STARRING EDIE FALCO AND ALISON PILL

BEGINS PREVIEWS TOMORROW, SATURDAY, MAY 8TH

OPENING NIGHT IS SUNDAY, MAY 16TH

www.NakedAngels.com 


The American premiere of This Wide Night starring two-time Golden Globe and three-time Emmy Award-winner Edie Falco and Tony nominee Alison Pill begins previews Saturday, May 8, 2010 at 7:30 PM at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre (416 West 42nd Street).  This Wide Night will open on May 16, 2010 and runs through June 20, 2010. 

This Wide Night is written by Blackburn Prize-winning playwright Chloe Moss and directed by Anne Kauffman.

A prison sentence isn’t over once you leave jail. Having just begun to rebuild a life on the outside, Marie (Pill) is confronted with her past when former cellmate Lorraine (Falco) shows up unannounced on her doorstep. The two outcasts, once so close on the inside, struggle to navigate a friendship beyond the prison walls – which may threaten their prospects to start over.  This Wide Night is a heartfelt and witty portrait of two lost souls trying to find their way in an unforgiving world.
