Summary

“Richard Maxwell [is] one of the few truly original experimental theater auteurs.” – The New York Times

“FIVE STARS…The quartet works at an incredible, precise pitch.” – Time Out New York

Isolde is a new American play about memory, identity, the ephemeral, and infidelity, written and directed by Richard Maxwell. In the play, inspired by the legend of Tristan and Isolde, the marriage of Patrick and Isolde appears to be happy. Patrick is the owner of a successful construction company and Isolde is a star actress. But Isolde finds herself increasingly unable to remember her lines. When she decides to build her dream house, her husband is eager to help. But the project is jeopardized by Massimo, an award-winning architect whom Isolde hires.

Isolde received its critically acclaimed U.S. Premiere at Abrons Arts Center in 2014 with a brief run of 9 sold-out performances. The production features New York City Players veterans Jim Fletcher, Brian Mendes, Tory Vazquez, and Gary Wilmes.
