Product Description

In The Other Place, one of the undisputed highlights of the 2012 Broadway season, Juliana Smithton is a successful neurologist whose life seems to be coming unhinged. Her husband has filed for divorce, her daughter has eloped with a much older man and her own health is in jeopardy. But in this brilliantly crafted work, nothing is as it seems. Piece by piece, a mystery unfolds as fact blurs with fiction, past collides with present, and the elusive truth about Juliana boils to the surface.

The Other Place received its world premiere Off-Broadway with MCC Theatre and its Broadway premiere with Manhattan Theatre Club, both productions featuring Laurie Metcalf (Lucille Lortel and Obie awards, Tony nomination). It was an Outer Critics Circle Award nominee for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play.

Praise for The Other Place:

"Sudden flares of uncontrolled feeling appear like lightning flashes from a sky that was clear just moments before...Gradually our faith in this seemingly most reliable of narrators is undermined by deftly disclosed pieces of information." —The New York Times

"White writes with great simplicity and discipline about a situation that defies discipline, defies neatness." —New York Magazine

Sharr White's plays have been developed or produced at Manhattan Theatre Club, MCC Theatre, Nationaltheater Mannheim, Melbourne Theatre Company, The Magic Theater, South Coast Repertory, Actors Theatre of Louisville, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Marin Theatre Company, Lincoln Center Theater's Directors Lab, Key West Theatre Festival, and more.
