Somewhere Fun

Rosemary and Evelyn met "a hundred thousand years ago" in Central Park when their children were barely born. SOMEWHERE FUN reunites the two women thirty-five years later on Madison Avenue, one windy fall day. With their children now grown and the world changing rapidly before (what's left of) their eyes, each finds herself face to face with the terrors, joys, and surprises of life and time. Jenny Schwartz returns to The Vineyard following her critically-acclaimed play GOD'S EAR with this wildly original story about connectio--to our families, our memories, our moment in time. Schwartz reunites with director Anne Kauffman (BELLEVILLE, SLOWGIRL) following their collaboration on GOD’S EAR.
