Some description

The night before a funeral, family members gather in a single hotel room in New Mexico, shuffling sleeping arrangements, dealing with absent family members, and preparing for their uncertain futures. A play about the moments you decide how much you will give to someone you owe nothing to. Straight from its world premiere production at South Coast Rep, Curve of Departure returns the playwright and director of The Wolfe Twins to Studio.


It's one of the year's most beautiful performances.

The Washington Post

The most satisfying dramatic experience thus far this season.

Broadway World

A tight-knit family drama so comfortable in its skin... a little gem of a play.
