Stageworks/Hudson presents a special return engagement of TOMORROW IN THE BATTLE by award winning dramatist, Kieron Barr directed by Laura Margolis, from August 13 to 31.
“Tomorrow in the Battle” finds Simon, a heart surgeon, in a heated affair with Jennifer who is a successful a young investor that he met at an opera. Though oblivious to her husband’s betrayal, Simon’s wife Anna has contrived a romantic seduction of her own.
Simon, Jennifer and Anna are also facing professional dilemmas which mirror their personal crises. Simon prepares to perform a transplant on the heart of a young boy even as he takes an increasingly devil-may-care approach to his work. Anna, a civil servant at the Ministry of Defense, is coaxed into giving false evidence to Parliament to conceal an error in the program to renew the country’s nuclear weapons system. Meanwhile, a trip to the New York Stock Exchange reveals to Jennifer that deception is not limited to the domains of the heart.
With their secrets deepening in risk and intensity, the past and present intertwine, thrusting them toward a desperate moment that changes their lives forever. Immediate, exquisite and often humorous, “Tomorrow in the Battle” is a sensual yet terrifying exposure of contemporary mores. At Stageworks/Hudson, 41 Cross Street.
