HELTER SKELTER/ LAND OF THE DEAD

Sold out

In a chic restaurant in New York City, a man and his wife meet to take a break from Christmas shopping before heading back to their hotel. He doesn't know that she has already seen him today.

Elsewhere in town a couple part. He goes to the office, she visits a clinic. As events unfold it becomes clear that this is not going to be just any ordinary day.

In two stunning new companion pieces, award-winning playwright, screenwriter and film director Neil LaBute charts the trajectories of two regular couples in contemporary America, and their extreme responses to sudden changes in their lives.
