Too Much, Too Much, Too Many

"An affecting new play." —Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
 
"Passionate performances." —Stephen Lee, Entertainment Weekly
 
 
Now in its seventh season, Roundabout Underground presents a vibrant New York premiere by up-and-coming playwright Meghan Kennedy, directed by Tony® nominee Sheryl Kaller (Next Fall).
 
Following the death of her husband, Rose locks herself in her bedroom for the better part of a year, leaving her daughter Emma to care for her through the closed door. When the church sends a pastor to help coax Rose out of her room, he soon finds that Rose is not the only one using barriers to hide her true feelings.
 
Bittersweet, poignant and touchingly funny, Too Much, Too Much, Too Many is a compelling new drama about the walls we build to protect our hearts––and deciding when it’s time to break them down.

Roundabout Underground is an initiative to showcase new plays that will either allow an experienced director to go back to his/her creative roots or give a debut production to an emerging writer or director. Robyn Goodman (Artistic Consultant to the Roundabout), who has significant artistic development experience, curates the initiative that continues to be a creative breeding ground for nurturing new talent.
Major support for this production provided by Jodi and Dan Glucksman.
