Manhattan Theatre Club (Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director and Chris Jennings, Executive Director) is pleased to present We Had a World by Joshua Harmon (Bad JewsPrayer for the French Republic at MTC), directed by Trip Cullman (Choir Boy at MTC, I Can Get It For You Wholesale)

A dying woman calls her grandson and asks him to write a play about their family. “But I want you to promise me something,” she says. “Make it as bitter and vitriolic as possible." In this searing, funny and deeply personal play, the author of last season's Prayer for the French Republic recreates thirty years of family fights, monstrous behavior, enormous cruelty, and enduring love.


Casting, creative team, and other listings information for this new play will be announced at a later date.
