'Cul-de-sac' by the Half Moon Theatre Company at The Culinary Institute of America

Half Moon Theatre Company presents its production of the dark comedy, “Cul-de-sac" by Tony Award-nominated actor and playwright, John Cariani. The play depicts the story of three couples – the Smiths, the Johnsons, and the Joneses – all living “on a nice little street, in a nice little suburb, in a nice little state, in a nice big country.” Although all appearing to be happy, we learn that living the American isn’t always what it seems.

"Charming, witty and macabre..."  — The New York Times

"For every clear-eyed profundity he offers, Cariani serves up an equal amount of laughs... A potent wake-up call."  — NYTheatre.com

The show’s opening night is this Saturday, April 29th at 8pm, and runs weekends through Sunday, May 14th. The play is staged at The Culinary Institute of America’s Marriott Pavilion at 1946 Campus Drive in Hyde Park.
