THE STORY:

When Stanley invites his estranged 18-year-old daughter to spend her first winter break from college with him in his recently robbed row home that doubles as a gun shop, he is stunned by a stray jolt of the unfamiliar: a home suddenly alive with disquiet, and a shocking glimpse at a life with potential.

“Christina Masciotti treats her characters with a kindness and patience that are usually accorded to only the very young or very old … This playwright has a distinctive gift for finding an original poetry in everyday speech.”

—The New York Times

“Remarkable … ADULT acquires a kind of quiet force.”

—The Village Voice

“It’s a blessing and relief to see people on stage like Stanley and Tara: beautifully drawn … treated with rough, cuffing affection by their portraitist … Masciotti has made brilliantly two rich characters … Her character work can’t be surpassed.”

—Time Out New York
