Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) are pleased to present the World Premiere of The Perplexed, written by Tony Award Winner Richard Greenberg (Take Me Out, Our Mother’s Brief Affair, The Assembled Parties) and directed by MTC’s award-winning Artistic Director Lynne Meadow (The Cake, The Assembled Parties, The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife).

Two families, whose lives have been tumultuously intertwined for decades, gather in the massive library of a gaudy Fifth Avenue apartment to celebrate the nuptials of their children. Nothing goes smoothly and as the big moment approaches, the burning question is: can everyone put aside long-smoldering jealousies and deep-seated grudges and just get through the ceremony?  The Perplexed, a bitingly witty new play, reunites Tony winner Richard Greenberg with MTC’s award-winning Artistic Director Lynne Meadow (The Assembled Parties, Our Mother’s Brief Affair).   

Casting and the creative team for The Perplexed will be announced at a later date.

The Perplexed was commissioned by Manhattan Theatre Club.
