Turning Off the Morning News, McCarter’s next world premiere commission by Christopher Durang, and the follow up to his 2013 Tony Award winner for Best Play, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, opens May 12 and runs through June 1.

Experience a decidedly dark and daring comedy that takes hilarious aim at today’s absurd and dangerous world. Tony Award®-winning Christopher Durang is back with a new cast of eccentric characters—starting with Cliff and Salena, whose across-the-street neighbors are at best peculiar—and at worst, stark raving mad.

Turning Off the Morning News may simultaneously unnerve you and delight you. It will keep you in suspense, hysterics, and undoubtedly, in conversation, long after you leave the theater.
