Overview

With Two Days, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Donald Margulies offers a gripping evening of theatre that explores the impact of enormous external events on our daily lives. This double-cast double-bill opens with a twenty-minute chamber piece, Last Tuesday, which finds commuters on a train from New York to New Haven absorbed with the sometimes comical, quotidian details of their lives as the horror of the outside world insistently—and shockingly—intrudes. July 7, 1994 is a haunting hour-long exploration of a day in the life of a female physician working in an inner-city health clinic.

Editorial Reviews

Chicago Tribune
...a powerful drama about a new and devastating age of anxiety in the United States. JULY 7, 1994 ranks as an important work by a gifted [playwright].
Hartford Courant
...the hero of the evening is Margulies, whose idiomatic, finely observed writing and presiding intelligence sharpen a thoughtful and provocative evening to a finely penetrating point.
New Haven Register
...Margulies faces [the post 9/11 reality] eerily and shatteringly head-on...genuinely moving...
San Francisco Chronicle
Superb...a beauty...JULY 7, 1994 achieved what contemporary theater does at its best. In reflecting a familiar world, it revealed the sinew, muscle and blood below the skin of our own experience.
