Northlight Theatre is continuing its 2023–2024 season with the rolling world premiere of Brooklyn Laundry by John Patrick Shanley, the Pulitzer, Tony, and Oscar-award winning author of Moonstruck, Doubt, and Outside Mullingar. Brooklyn Laundry runs April 11-May 12, 2024, at Northlight Theatre.

Fran is chronically single, has piles of bills, and finds Owen obnoxious. Owen has a bad back, runs a laundry, and thinks Fran is gloomy. And then he asks her out. After years of putting the rest of her family first, Fran is ready to make the leap toward her own romantic dreams. Little does she know that even bigger challenges are headed her way.

Featuring Sandra Delgado (Susie), Marika Mashburn (Trish), Mark Montgomery (Owen), and Cassidy Slaughter-Mason (Fran).

The creative team includes Jeffrey Kmiec (set design), Izumi Inaba (costume design), JR Lederle (light design), Lindsay Jones (sound design), and Katie Klemme (stage manager).
