Philadelphia, PA - Philadelphia Theatre Company 2019-2020 season kicks off with a bang.

“I am beyond excited to finally have an opportunity to produce this play and to find a project for Bebe and me to work on together. I think audiences are in for a major treat,” said Price.
Price has desired to perform this show ever since she watched the World Premiere at Playwrights Horizons. “I have dreamed of producing it ever since, and was waiting for the right time and place and now, the right star. I love how Adam Bock always threads elements of mystery into his plays. What is this thing that is happening to Emily and why? It’s like an episode of House, but we don’t focus on the doctor, we focus on the patient and her family. As we learn of each development in the central character Emily’s mysterious condition, the information is delivered almost matter of factly. We focus, then, on how she responds to her new reality, and on how her family dynamics shift in dramatic jags,” she said.
Subscriptions are on sale and start at $48. Single tickets will be on sale August 1. Subscriptions are readily available at the box office, online at philatheatreco.org or by phone at 215-985-0420.
