When the Lights Went Out

By Mozhan Marno
Directed by Kate Whoriskey

July 17–28, 2013

On the night of the Northeast blackout of 2003, six New Yorkers connect through interwoven stories. In the darkness, two strangers fall in love during an epic walk across Manhattan; an older couple marooned in their apartment must finally grapple with their past; and a conflicted Iraqi immigrant trapped in an elevator chases memories of her lost son and her homeland through the shadows. Mozhan Marnò will be joined for her playwriting debut by director Kate Whoriskey (world premieres of Ruined, The Piano Teacher, Fabulation).
