About the Event:

She’s been disruptive in class. She’s rude to the teachers. And now she wants to learn the trumpet. But whose performance is really being judged? A mother and father prepare to discuss their daughter’s progress at the local primary school, but their rare opportunity for some quality time together begins to test the bonds of love, work and family.

Charged, passionate and surprising, Parents’ Evening is a fierce and funny play about modern marriage and parenthood. This European premiere marks the homecoming of a major British talent already acclaimed in America.

London-bred Bathsheba Doran has established a reputation in New York as one of the best playwrights of her generation. Winner of the Berwin Lee Award, and a Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and Writers Guild Award nominee, her plays have appeared at Lincoln Center Theater, and her extensive screenwriting includes Boardwalk Empire and Masters of Sex.

Stella Powell-Jones (YC ’09) is Deputy Director of Jermyn Street Theatre.
