Lisa, a fiery sexpot infatuated with trains, awakens three best friends to the possibilities of love. Chasing Lisa through the underground labyrinth of New York City’s subway tunnels, a grieving Jeff finds comfort in the exhilaration of dodging the third rail. Meanwhile, Martin and Jennifer explore their own electricity through their obsession with the Yankees. This urban love story, filled with late arrivals and missed connections, examines everyday characters in extraordinary circumstances. Are they willing to travel to the end of the line for love?
The Man Under is a play that deals heavily with the aftermath of the death of a young woman. She suffers from and succumbs to her illness. Our play can be seen as a play about health, and one way we feel we can make a difference is by using our art to help others.
The Man Under is a dark comedy that handles the serious themes of home, loss, love, cancer, secrets, thought and impulse – everyday issues for everyday characters in extraordinary circumstances. In short, it’s about what is said and unsaid in our relationships and how we choose to connect with those we love or want to love. The action takes place in and under present day New York City.
|Struggling to honestly express their feelings has kept Jeff, Martin and Jennifer resigned to unhappiness. But after Jeff tracks down Lisa- a fiery and unpredictable sexpot he met briefly on a subway platform, the three friends finally learn to speak up about how they really feel. The Man Under is a story about what is said and unsaid in our relationships and how we choose to connect to those we love or want to love.
