About the show:
Poison uncovers how we can cope, live and grow after devastating pain.
Featured in the two-character play are the Obie Award-winner Birgit Huppuch as She, and the Drama Desk nominee Michael Laurence as He. Directed by Erwin Maas,
In Poison words are used to conceal the truth and maintain boundaries as a couple meet again after a painful separation. Try as they might to avoid speaking about what happened and what has happened since, their fragility and doubt seep in through the cracks and wounds are opened anew.
The international smash hit has been seen in French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Greek, Chinese, Russian, Danish, Swedish and now into English. It was staged all over continental Europe, Russia, South America and Mexico and will be premiered in China and South Africa in the coming year.
Poison uses language and grit to offer varieties of perspectives and possibilities of hope.
