The Rep: “A Map of Virtue” by Erin Courtney

Saturday, April 25, 2015 - 8:00pm

A haunting romantic play with a mystery at its center, Erin Courtney’s A Map of Virtue is a spellbinding, symmetrical journey into the heart of darkness, guided by a bird statue. Part interview, part comedy, part middle-of-the-night-middle-of-the-forest horror story, it is surprising and unforgettable. A story about the present, the supernatural and the ways we try to understand evil. The play won an Obie Award in 2012 and was named a New York Times Critics’ Pick, and Courtney received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2013.

Their old fears, unfulfilled desires and deep bonds with each other transform a prenuptial bender into a night they’ll never forget. A comedy about female friendship and growing up in an age of excess. The New York Post wrote of Headland, "The talented young playwright displays a gift for incisive characterizations and sharp, comic dialogue."
