IF THERE IS I HAVENÂ'T FOUND IT YETÂ's Jake Gyllenhaal and Brian F. O'Byrne Set for THE LEONARD LOPATE SHOW
Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) is pleased to present the American Premiere of Nick Payne's If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet, directed by Michael Longhurst. The limited run, which was originally scheduled to run through November 25 only, will take a 12 day break before resuming performances on December 8 and play two additional weeks through December 23.
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?
