This Flat Earth - 2018 - Off-Broadway

$39 - $89

At a middle school in this seaside town, the unthinkable has happened, placing a bewildered community in the national spotlight. Stuck at home in a state of shocked limbo, Julie and Zander, two thirteen-year-olds, try to make sense of the chaos they witnessed, their awkward crushes, and an infinitely more complicated future — but the grown-ups are no help at all. An urgent response to our times, This Flat Earth is a startling and deeply felt story of growing up in our confounding world.


Running Time: One hour and 30 minutes

Playwrights Horizons

(New York, NY)
416 West 42nd St.(between 9th & 10th Aves)
