Katha and Ryu have become allergic to their 21st-century lives. After they meet a charismatic man from a community of 1950s re-enactors, they forsake cell phones and sushi for cigarettes and Tupperware parties. In this compulsively authentic world, Katha and Ryu are surprised by what their new neighbors—and they themselves—are willing to sacrifice for happiness. A new play by Jordan Harrison (Doris to Darlene; Amazons and Their Men), directed by Obie Award winner Anne Kauffman (This Wide Night; Stunning; The Thugs).
The New York Premiere of a play by Jordan Harrison.

"A clever, sharply drawn fantasy with brightly saturated comic performances. Makes a sneaky, compelling case for the seductions of living the Ozzie and Harriet life. A sleek production directed by Anne Kauffman.”
--Charles Isherwood, New York Times
“Goodbye feminism, lattes and the Internet! Hello, rigid gender roles, Sanka and rotary phones! Jordan Harrison’s MAPLE AND VINE has one of the most intriguing premises of the year."
-- Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post
“A uniformly sparkly cast.”
-- Joe Dziemianowicz, NY Daily News
“A darkly appealing fairy tale. Jordan Harrison racks up beaucoup points for originality in Anne Kauffman's exceptionally smart production.”
-- Marilyn Stasio, Variety
