The Thin Place

June 20-30

Written by Lucas Hnath

Directed by Gabrielle Farrah


Everyone who ever died is still here, just in a different part of here. Linda can communicate with them. And if you believe, she can make you hear them, too—in the thin place, the fragile boundary between our world and the other one. With acuity and relentless curiosity, Lucas Hnath’s play transforms the theater into an intimate séance, crafting an unnerving testament to the power of the mind, which has a mind of its own.

“Compelling and delicious: another example of Hnath’s theatrical intelligence and respect for human mystery…The Thin Place keeps on haunting because it presses against the deepest human longings not only for connection but also for exposure. We want to know what’s out there, yes, but we also want it to know us.”
