ISOLDE

ISOLDE is a new American play about memory, identity, the ephemeral, and infidelity, written and directed by Richard Maxwell, “one of the few truly original experimental theater auteurs.” (Ben Brantley, The New York Times) In the play, inspired by the legend of Tristan and Isolde, the marriage of Patrick and Isolde appears to be happy. Patrick is the owner of a successful construction company and Isolde is a star actress. But Isolde finds herself increasingly unable to remember her lines. When she decides to build her dream house, her husband is eager to help. But the project is jeopardized by Massimo, an award-winning architect whom Isolde hires.

ISOLDE received its U.S. Premiere at Abrons Arts Center in 2014. The brief run of 9 performances sold out and received critical acclaim – “Graphic and elegant” (Hilton Als, The New Yorker); “Five Stars…Works at an incredible, precise pitch.” (Helen Shaw, Time Out New York)

30-and-under folks and full-time students get $20 tickets to any performance of ISOLDE, anytime, with your valid ID. Just use code NEWDEAL.
