    Last Supper

    Read the Offoffoff review

    A powerful, voyeuristic and painfully intimate view of two brothers' crumbling marriages in the evening after their mother's funeral. John is a psychologist with a cruel streak. His wife, Charlotte, yearns for her husband's love more than anything else. She has surprised him by inviting his estranged brother, Alan, and Alan's unfaithful wife, Monica, to stay the night following the cremation. The mother's ashes are in an urn on the coffee table and there is a palpable sense of imbalance in the house. John has left the phone off the hook to console Nina, his troubled eleven year-old daughter from a previous marriage, whose mother is out carousing and has left the girl home alone. The phone line between them is open, but what the girl will hear is the dissolving of civil conversation and the ruthless playing out of sadomasochistic psychological games as drinks are refilled and two marriages spin out of control. The American premiere of "Last Supper" by Lars Norn, who is widely regarded as Sweden's Eugene O'Neill, will be the debut production of Actors without Borders-ITONY (International Theater of New York), a new resident company of La MaMa founded by Zishan Ugurlu, a member of La MaMa's Great Jones Repertory. Norn is the Scandinavian playwright most-performed in the world, although his plays, even the well-known "Night is the Mother of Day," are undiscovered by most Americans. There is currently a proliferation of theatres producing Norn's work in Europe.
