IF THERE IS I HAVENÂ'T FOUND IT YET, Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Begins Performances Tonight
Previews begin tonight for If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet, a new play by Nick Payne, directed by Michael Longhurst. If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet features Annie Funke (Anna), Michelle Gomez (Fiona), Jake Gyllenhaal (Terry) and Brían F. O'Byrne (George).
If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet opens on Thursday, September 20th, 2012. This is a strictly limited engagement of 13-weeks through November 25, 2012.
Provocative, insightful and laced with fresh humor, If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet is an entertaining look at a regular family stuck somewhere between knowing what the problem is... and doing something about it.
Fifteen-year-old Anna's weight makes her a natural target for bullies. When her mom transfers Anna to the school where she teaches in order to protect her daughter, it only makes things worse. Anna's environmentalist dad, determined to finish his new book and save the planet, is no help at all. Just as Anna gets suspended for retaliating with a head-butt, her estranged uncle Terry arrives unannounced. A heartbroken drifter with the mouth of a sailor, Terry reaches out to Anna in a way that no one ever has. Their unexpected friendship sends her parents' rocky marriage into a tailspin as the whole family wonders, what--or who--really needs saving?
