See twin plays House & Garden at Trinity Rep

HOUSE-web-poster cropExperience the theatrical event of the season! Brown/Trinity Rep MFA students Catherine Dupont, Steven Jaehnert, Ted Moller and Bridget Saracino are performing in two interconnected plays at the same time. While the actors race from House (in the upstairs theater) to Garden (downstairs), the audience stays put, seeing one production at a time. To simplify, the website says: 2 plays. 2 audiences. 1 cast.

Time magazine has hailed this as “an audacious, crazy, altogether brilliant achievement.” A masterfully constructed duo, House & Garden are like two opposite sides of a theatrical puzzle – the picture gets clearer, funnier and more profound, when you return to see the second side of the story.

The shows run simultaneously through June 30th in both the Chace and Dowling theaters. For more information and tickets, visit, or read the program here.
