Primary Stages (Casey Childs, Founder & Executive Producer; Andrew Leynse, Artistic Director; Elliot Fox, Managing Director), continues their 29th season with a new production of their acclaimed 1995 OBIE Award winner, The Model Apartment, by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies (Shipwrecked!, Time Stands Still, Dinner with Friends, Sight Unseen).

The Model Apartment runs through November 1 at Primary Stages at 59E59 Theaters.
When Max and Lola, two Holocaust survivors from Brooklyn, retire to Florida, they find their new condo unfinished and are forced to spend the night in a "model apartment" where things are not always as they seem. In this brilliant and bizarre Drama Desk-nominated black comedy, Max and Lola soon realize that if they ever want to truly "retire," they must first confront the demons of their past.
"Donald Margulies is a vital member of the Primary Stages family and we're excited to be remounting THE MODEL APARTMENT," says Andrew Leynse, Artistic Director, Primary Stages. "The play has such an important place in our history and we feel it's time to bring this essential Donald Margulies work back to the New York theater scene."
