The world premiere of Will Eno’s new off-Broadway play The Open House is to extend its run at The Romulus Linney Courtyard at the Pershing Square Signature Center after selling out its initial run. Directed by Oliver Butler and starring Carolyn McCormick and Peter Friedman, the show had been scheduled to play through March 23, but will now end performances March 30.
Ever enigmatic Pulitzer Prize finalist Eno’s new play is described as follows: "Playwrights have been trying to write Family Plays for a long time. And typically these plays try to answer endlessly complicated questions of blood and duty and inheritance and responsibility. They try to answer the question, 'Can things really change?' People have been trying nobly for years and years to have plays solve in two hours what hasn't been solved in many lifetimes. This has to stop."
The cast also features Hannah Bos, Michael Countryman and Danny McCarthy.
