ABOUT THE PLAY:Undermain returns to the work of award winning playwright Jackie Sibblies Drury, whose provocative and exciting play We Are Proud to Present a Presentation… was staged in its 30th season. In Ms. Drury’s latest play, Really, three people’s lives intertwine,through the art of photography as they search for the truth of their common history in thistense and telling play about artists, legacy, and the ephemeral nature of time. Really asks what do we try to leave behind, what do we actually leave behind, and how do we deal with being left. ''an unnerving study of art as pollution, distraction from a world fast evolving beyond aesthetics.'' ~ Time Out New York CRITICS' PICK"stylishly contemplative...[Ms. Drury] asks provocative questions about thevalue of what is seen in pictures that freeze fleeting moments for posterity...Magic has happened, and it’s as unsettling as it is irrefutable. Does any photograph do justice to the reality it tries to capture?” ~ The New York Times
