Brooklyn Laundry

By John Patrick Shanley
Directed by BJ Jones

Rolling World Premiere

Fran is broke and chronically single. Owen has a bad back and a lot of baggage. And then he asks her out. They might be just what each other needs… but life still has some savage tricks in store. At turns funny and tragic, this new play takes a fresh look at relationships, family, and surprising second chances.
