Columnist, The Drama 7 (5m, 2f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

From the Pulitzer and Tony award–winning author of Proof, a drama about the press and power, sex and betrayal. At the height of the Cold War, Joe Alsop is the nation's most influential journalist, beloved, feared and courted by the Washington world. But as the '60s dawn and America undergoes dizzying change, the intense political dramas Joe is embroiled in become deeply personal as well.

"David Auburn's THE COLUMNIST is about how one's false sense of order can be reshaped by the times, how the personal is political, and how both involve smoke and mirrors…A rich experience." —The New Yorker. "Intensely satisfying." —Bloomberg News. "David Auburn brings intelligence and insight to THE COLUMNIST." —NY1.com. "Gripping and moving." —Variety.

Journals of Mihail Sebastian, The Drama 1 (1m, 0f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

In the decadent, politically explosive Bucharest of the 1930s and 40s, a young writer struggles to maintain his career, his integrity and his Jewish identity, even as his closest friends ally themselves with Fascism. Based on the controversial journals, this epic one-man play spans eight tumultuous years and opens a uniquely personal window on the Romanian Holocaust and the Second World War.

"Powerful." —NY Times. "[THE JOURNALS OF MIHAIL SEBASTIAN] allows us to glimpse the idiosyncratic effects of that awful history on one intelligent, pragmatic, recognizably real man…David Auburn endows the piece with the carefully modulated accessibility that he gave to Proof, for which he won both a Tony Award and a Pulitzer Prize in 2001." —NY Newsday. "Suspenseful." —NY Magazine. "A sinister tale, one well worth telling." —NY Sun. "A stop motion series of snapshots…A freshness that rejuvenates history's bitter truths." —Village Voice. "…compelling. Keen Company's well-crafted world premiere offers powerful passages and a distinctive perspective on the Holocaust." —Star-Ledger. "Auburn has chosen an eloquent subject for this solo work…Watching the twilight of his denial obliterated by the harsh dawn of worldwide war is most chillingly relevant right now." —NYTheatre.com. "Auburn has created a script that is as much a portrait of a whole society as the man who finds himself increasingly alone and horrified by the evidences of that society's 'bestiality'…" —CurtainUp.

New York Idea, The Comedy/Satire 12 (7m, 5f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

Cynthia Karslake is a freewheeling divorcee in 1906 New York City society. She has decided to settle down again into a much more stable, reliable relationship with the prominent Judge Philip Phillimore. Little does she know, however, that neither of their bombastic and blowsy ex-spouses, nor her beloved racehorse Cynthia K is yet down for the count. In this sharp-tongued comedy, David Auburn enlivens and enriches a little-known play from a century ago, and shines a surprisingly contemporary light on social mores, status and attitudes about sex and divorce in high society.

"Auburn has crafted a dandy little work…He's done more than adapt Mitchell's play; he's essentially rebuilt it from the ground up." —Entertainment Weekly. "…slimmer, faster and lighter on its feet than the original…[the] use of frivolous form to pursue Puritan objectives makes THE NEW YORK IDEA fascinating."

—NY Times. "…those with a taste for period comedy should thoroughly enjoy themselves…there's no doubt that Auburn's adaptation is a much sturdier piece of work than Mitchell's original…the play's most salient feature is what it reveals about the mores of its day." —BackStage. "Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright David Auburn highlights all of the tropes of screwball comedy that audiences love." —NY Press.
