About the show

An intimate, explosive, and poetic exploration of love in the face of catastrophe, English writer Philip Ridley’s provocative play comes back to New York in a reimagined, African-American production.

From the show:

This is the story of you and your first great love...

A young couple face an unnamed catastrophe. They wind their love back to its beginnings through a fantastical, erotic world of serpent slayings, monkey wars, alien abductions and a shipwrecked paradise. Dangerously and absolutely, they dream and dance themselves into the secret places of love and desire, back to the ecstasy of their first kiss. Explosive, poetic and brutal, Tender Napalm re-examines and re-defines the language of love…and how that love struggles to survive in the face of catastrophe.

With approval from playwright Philip Ridley, director David Norwood brings a unique vision to this acclaimed play, seen through the eyes of an African-American couple.

If you think you know love, think again.
