“Hallucinatory. Psychotropic. Miraculous” (The New York Times). OBIE award-winning Andrew Schneider’s technical theater masterpiece examines in micro-detail the consuming and agonizing last burst of human thought before entering the afterlife. AFTER commands mind-bending light and sound effects, and pairs them with adept physical performances riddled with pathos, humor and intelligence. This sensitive inner monologue delves into the individual’s consciousness with spellbinding machinations that engage all the senses to construct a poignant clarification of where the human experience stops, how it gets there and what comes after.

In this sprawling and heartfelt coming-of-age story, Heidi Holland grows up before our eyes. Starting out as a bright, idealistic college student of the 1960s, the world around her rapidly changes. With feminist guiding principles, she strives to build a fulfilling life and is forced to confront, through her work, friendship and relationships, the true cost of “having it all.” From celebrated playwright Wendy Wasserstein, this endearingly funny play is a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner, newly resonant for a generation experiencing feminism through the lens of #MeToo and #TimesUp. “Resonates today as strongly, and at times as painfully, as [it] did when Wendy Wasserstein’s most celebrated play stormed Broadway in 1989.” – The New York Times
