An Opening in Time

September 17 – October 11

By Christopher Shinn
Directed by Oliver Butler

A moving play about finding connections in a shifting world. Anne, a retired schoolteacher, moves back to the suburban town in central Connecticut which she left years before. She finds a number of things have changed. Dunkin’ Donuts franchises are everywhere; the local high school is putting on a production of Rent; and a long-lost friendship suddenly reappears in a new guise.

A Pulitzer finalist for Dying City, presented at Hartford Stage in the 2008/09 season, Shinn is the winner of a 2005 OBIE in Playwriting and a Guggenheim Fellowship in Playwriting. He was shortlisted for the London Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Play and has been nominated for an Olivier Award for Most Promising Playwright and the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Playwright.
