Corsicana - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

The world premiere of Will Arbery's Corsicana is at Playwrights Horizons as part of the 2021-2022 Off-Broadway season. Corsicana tickets in New York are on sale soon.



In Corsicana, a small city in Texas, a woman with Down syndrome named Ginny and her half-brother Christopher are unmoored in the wake of their mother's death. Their close family friend, Justice, introduces them to a local artist named Lot, a recluse and outsider, hoping that he and Ginny can make a song together. That that'll help somehow.



In this restless quartet about care-taking and care-giving, in which the very fabric of reality is up for debate, Will Arbery charts the quiet, particular contracts of the heart that forge a new family.

For decades, Nashville America Records has been the label home for David Frizzell's individual projects as well as the renowned Frizzell & Friends collaborations produced by the country music icon. Those collaborations have included projects with Merle Haggard, Crystal Gayle, Johnny Lee, Gene Watson, T. Graham Brown, Lacy J. Dalton, Jimmy Fortune (Statler Brothers), John Cowan (New Grass Revival), and many more top names. After being invited by a friend to hear Sarah Patrick perform, Frizzell soon signed the young singer/songwriter to his label.
