The Healing - 2016 - Off-Broadway

$56.25

Twenty-five years ago, a motley group of friends met as kids at a summer camp where the head counselor secretly taught them their disabilities could be "cured" through the power of prayer. Today, the group has gathered to mourn the untimely passing of one of its members. Over the course of the night, old wounds are uncovered, friendships are tested and the truth surrounding their late friend becomes troublingly clear.

Samuel D. Hunter is the recipient of The Drama Desk and The Lucille Lortel Award for best play for his 2013 play The Whale. He is the winner of the MacArthur "genius grant" fellowship. This is the World Premiere of his newest play.

Running Time: One hour and 30 minutes, with no intermission
