Rising star Kristjan Thor, named one of New York Magazine’s "Most Likely to be Famous Before 30," directs Bärfuss’ US debut of The Sexual Neuroses of Our Parents which has been called “Horribly compelling” by the Times UK, “taboo-busting” and “This in-yer-face piece sticks in-yer-mind” by Time Out London and the London Evening Standard says, “This show makes a splash.” Grace Gummer, daughter of Meryl Streep and sister of Mamie Gummer, will make her NY theatrical debut as Dora, who, after ten years on tranquillizers, emerges with an insatiable sexual appetite that pits her against a secret and deviant adult world. Not your normal coming of age story. Not your everyday sexual awakening.
