Playwright Bess Wohl’s play set at a silent retreat was highly-acclaimed when it ran in New York. Now the show comes to Los Angeles with a run at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica that begins on Friday and runs through January 28th.
Much of the play is performed without dialogue – after all, they are at a silent retreat. But it is the power of the silence and how we choose to let it in that resonates with the characters in the play and ultimately the audience.
There is a warning on the website that indicates the show does include non-sexual nudity and isn’t appropriate for children.
Look for an interview with playwright Bess Wohl later this week here at Cultural Attaché.
