Some description

The dingy back alley of a sleepy Vermont coffeehouse is home to trash bins, weathered patio furniture, and two affable slackers. KJ and Jasper fill their languid days with Bukowski references, low-key jam sessions, and ‘shroom-spiked tea. When a new employee—the smart but awkward teen Evan—attempts to evict them from their makeshift perch, KJ and Jasper recruit him as their unlikely summer protégé. Praised by The Village Voice as “an eloquent meditation on creativity and time’s passage,” this drama is a subtle ode to the truth and compassion hidden in unexpected people and places. From the critically acclaimed writer of Circle Mirror Transformation.

Studio’s Subscription Season is the core of our programming, offering an uncommonly rich repertoire of provocative contemporary writing from around the world and inventive stagings of contemporary classics. 


A pristinely acted production.

McKenzie is mesmerizing as KJ, with all the innocuous potential of a smothered stick of dynamite.


Neugebauer possesses skilled talent in making Annie Baker’s scripted silences, one word monologues, and the sense of nothing much happening in ordinary situations -authoritative, heartbreakingly touching, and truly unforgettable.
