GABLESTAGE

at the Biltmore

presents the Southeastern Premiere of

FIFTY WORDS

by Michael Weller

with

ERIN JOY SCHMIDT and GREGG WEINER 

Directed by JOSEPH ADLER 

When their young son has his first sleepover, Adam and Jan are allowed the first night alone together in their Brooklyn brownstone in years. Will they renew a vital spark that's been nearly smothered or, will the night provide the moment when provisional civility explodes into fiery chaos? An expansive look at modern marriage that is alternately funny and frightening. 

"Smart, muscular writing! Submerges the audience in the mysteries of the human connection!" -John Lahr, The New Yorker 

"Mr. Weller is a bold and productive dramatist! He understands how closely hate and love can be linked in marriage, and how paradoxically this double-edged closeness causes husbands and wives to behave... when people act on these naked impulses, it's not only the line between love and hate that gets fuzzy but also the line between sex and violence!"

-Ben Brantley, The New York Times
