May 2 – June 2, 2012 at Undermain Theatre

Two strangers intrude on Meg and Petey’s sleepy seaside boarding house. They’ve arrived just in time for the birthday party of the star-boarder, Stanley, a celebration that soon shatters into madness and menace. A rare opportunity to see the revolutionary play that turned the table on modern theatre
