LEWISTON/CLARKSTON HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 16!
What the Press is Saying:
CRITICS PICK – New York Times
“It’s only fitting that Rattlestick Playwrights Theater would gut its Greenwich Village home to accommodate the unconventional production of Lewiston/Clarkston. The 24-year-old company merely did for Samuel D. Hunter’s new play what the play will do to you.” - The New York Times
"For the daring theatrical explorers among us, Lewiston/Clarkston is a must-see.” - Theatermania
“Theater of the most deeply moving kind…By the evening's end, you'll have a palpable sense of having shared something special with your fellow theatergoers.” - The Hollywood Reporter
“[Samuel D. Hunter]’s interested in American disenchantment, in the great adventure stories we’ve told ourselves about ourselves, and the legacy of those stories in a time when “there’s just nothing left to discover.” His characters are contemporary lost souls, too aware of the underbelly of the American narrative — of all that was lost and stolen and destroyed in the name of exploration and expansion — to believe in anything so naïve as a national dream, but still searching, stumbling down unknown paths toward something as small, or as great, as each other.” - Vulture/New York Magazine
“Riveting, haunting, extraordinary… leave it to Hunter, right at this moment, to find something beautiful beyond dispute that unites us as Americans, and as all people living here.” - New York Stage Review
Welcome to Rattlestick.
We believe in ambition, provocation, and conversation. Launching the careers of some of the American Theater's most notable playwrights.
