Overview

Jon Robin Baitz has been praised as one of America's foremost playwrights on themes of conscience. Now from the author of The Substance of Fire comes an absorbing new play about power and money and the ruinous effects it can have on friendship, love, marriage, and ultimately oneself. In this modern tragedy set in urban New York City, Wall Street powerhouse Sandy Sonenberg finds his personal and professional life threatened by the unraveling secrets of his past. After burying his true sexual identity, a lethal affair with a young male associate forces Sonenberg to confront a lifetime of unrequited love and betrayal.

Editorial Reviews

NY Times
...a potent stew of sensational incident...fiercely eloquent...actions always have moral dimensions in Mr. Baitz's plays...THE PARIS LETTER is no exception...effortlessly articulate...tracing the interlocking grooves of psychology and morality.
Variety
...head and shoulders above most current dramatic offerings...THE PARIS LETTER has potential to rank beside works of Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams. Baitz writes vibrant, stingingly literate dialogue...
NY Daily News
There is no shortage of plot in THE PARIS LETTER...Baitz is an intelligent, provocative writer, who specializes in moral conundrums...his characters have a complexity, a richness, a level of cultural awareness that was once standard but is now exotic...[a] stunning new play...
