Dawn Powell's
Big Night

In the Lansburgh Theatre

Nothing in life comes free, especially not marriage. Myra Bonney, a beautiful, brittle ex-model, lives in a cramped one-bedroom with her husband Ed, an ad man with a shaky grip on his career—and an even shakier grip on his morals. Ed and Myra’s marriage is put to the test when he tries to throw a hastily assembled party for Jonesie, an out-of-town client who just happens to share a history with Myra. Taffety Punk’s Lise Bruneau directs Dawn Powell’s hard-boiled, jazz-age comedy, which the author herself compared to Coward’s Private Lives.
