A play about Love, Labor, and Loss. In a garage. On Long Island. More…
After stumbling upon a small outdoor production of a Shakespeare play in Manhattan, Long Island landscaper Bob Malone is inspired to write a play about his troubled marriage. He hires two reluctant New York theatre professionals to spend a week at his home and stage the play in his garage with a cast of colorful locals. ‘The Groundling’ is a heartfelt comedy that meditates on the meaning of the final moments of ‘Love's Labour's Lost’.
See it if I have remembered this play as one of the most moving I've seen. It was surprising and funny and sad. Hopefully it will be revived.
Don't see it if No longer playing. Was performed in 2015 at the Axis Theater.
