On Stage


October 23 - November 24, 2013

By Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros
Directed by Associate Artistic Director Shirley Serotsky

Featuring Susan Rome, James Whalen and Jefferson A. Russell

Sophie, a charming, vibrant artist, and Phillip, a loyal, solid businessman, are a 40-something couple whose new relationship is rocked when Sophie learns she is pregnant. As each fights for the only future he or she can imagine, they are both forced to recognize the profound personal differences between them. And when the word "abortion" is introduced into the debate, all bets are off.

This newly commissioned 2013 edition of The Argument chronicles the arc of a relationship with humor, passion, brutality, and up-to-the-minute relevance.

From the co-author of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize-finalist Omnium Gatherum.
