A brand-new story told entirely through the peripheries and pivot points of an as-yet undetermined number of debates, wrangles, quarrels, arguments, discussions, tiffs, altercations, contretemps, and squabbles.
Daniel Kitson, a well-regarded but bald-headed forty-year-old writer and performer from a small village in the north of England, visits Washington DC for the very first time with the world premiere of a brand new show written in this particular time, for this particular place, and likely to be both funny and thoughtful, absurd and serious, rich with humanity and riddled with frustration.
Runtime: This performance will run approximately 2 hours with no intermission. There is no late seating for this production.
A Short Series of Disagreements is generously
underwritten by Susan and Dixon Butler.
Supported by Studio R&D, Studio’s New Works Initiative.
