About the Show:
The Property, a new play by Ben Josephson, is the story of one woman, the two men she loved, the one man she wants to love, and the teenage son she stifles.
Irene, once carefree and artistic but now a low-level corporate manager alarmed by the erosion of her family's financial security, imposes two measures to shore the family up. She rents out a property--the garden cottage that has been her current husband's retreat--to a teacher who infatuates her. Then she inveigles her ex, who is her son's vehemently estranged but influential father, into launching the boy on a lucrative career path. What emerges is the transformation of five people on edge, and constrained by an increasingly ungenerous world, into selves that would horrify the selves they once had been.
This project is presented by New Light Theater Project’s Spotlight Series.
Director Robert Kalfin is an award-winning New York theater director, honored with The Off-Broadway Alliance Legend of Off-Broadway Award in 2015.
