August 3-August 28, 2022
By Bess Wohl Directed by Jackson Gay Leonard C. Haas Stage
2020 Tony Award Nominee for Best Play
Over a quiet dinner for two, Bill and Nancy serenely decide to divorce after fifty years of marriage. While Nancy feels liberated and Bill seems unfazed, their adult sons Brian and Ben don’t exactly take it well. As the “kids” descend on the Grand Horizons senior living community in an attempt to mediate, everything they thought they knew about their parents comes crashing down. Bess Wohl’s (Barcelona) Tony-nominated comedy is a hilarious, heartbreaking commentary on marriage, family, and the wisdom that comes with age—or not.

Grand Horizons has been hailed as: 

"A sweet, sweet delight" and "extremely funny" 
New York Stage Review
"Deceptively insightful"

Relaxed Performance

Relaxed Performances offer a judgment-free environment that invites individuals with autism, ADD, ADHD, dementia, and other sensory sensitivities to enjoy theatre in a relaxed, “shush-free” zone—a great option for parents with young children, too. For each Relaxed Performance, we offer a pre-show Sensory Tour, during which patrons are able to enter the theatre space, view the set and props, and ask questions. Audio description is available upon request.
