Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) are pleased to announce that Manhattan Theatre Club will produce the world premiere of The Best We Could (a family tragedy), written by Emily Feldman (Three Women in Four Chairs, My Lover Joan) and directed by Daniel Aukin (Fool For Love, Skintight). The production was previously scheduled for the 2019-2020 season, when Feldman was MTC’s 2019-20 Tow Playwright-in-Residence, and delayed due to the COVID shutdown.

A daughter’s road trip with her father becomes a theatrical journey across more than just state lines. This funny, wise, and heartbreaking debut from an exciting new writer will be brought to vibrant life by director Daniel Aukin, whom MTC audiences will remember from Fool for Love and Fulfillment Center.

Casting, creative team, and other listings information for the best we could (a family tragedy) will be announced soon.

the best we could (a family tragedy) is supported by an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
