About the Premiere Production:
Synopsis: Bella Baird (Emmy, Golden Globe, and Tony Award winner Mary-Louise Parker) is an accomplished professor at an Ivy League university who prizes her solitude. But when she faces a challenge she cannot tackle alone, she allies herself with a brilliant and mysterious student, Christopher (Will Hochman). Intensely intimate and deeply moving, this haunting play probes the question of what one person can do for another.
Artistic/Grant Statement: "The Edgerton Foundation New Play Awards shape the best work being made in the American theatre and there is no greater evidence than the national and international impact their support is having. We can draw a hard, strong line from the support Edgerton gave us at Williamstown Theatre Festival for the world premiere of Martyna's Majok's Cost of Living to the Pulitzer Prize for Drama it was awarded this year,” said Mandy Greenfield, artistic director, Williamstown Theatre Festival. “We are profoundly grateful for their continued support this season and are honored to have three of our world premiere productions -- each by brilliant, unique and wildly diverse storytellers -- making their way into the world with greater artistic resources as a result of Edgerton's visionary leadership in the field of new work."
