A beautiful new drama about modern love
Esther and Schmuli are Satmar Hasidic Jews embarking on an arranged marriage, despite barely knowing each other. Abe and Julia are high-profile celebrities embarking on a dangerously flirtatious correspondence, despite being married to other people. On the surface, the lives of these two couples couldn’t be more different; but the hidden connections between these seemingly disparate people draw the audience into an intriguing puzzle and a deeply sympathetic look at modern love. From the award-winning writer of Photograph 51 and Actually comes this funny, insightful, and moving new play.
“One of the best written, most clever and tightly constructed plays I have seen this year…The Wanderers should not be missed.”— Entertainment Today
