Dramatic Comedy


From David Adjmi, the virtuosic playwright dubbed one of the "best and most original theatre artists of a generation" by Vogue, come a wholly original one-woman show. Elective Affinities takes the audience into the apartment of Alice, a witty octogenarian offering a funny and savage portrait of cultured life, promising to initiate a vital discourse about what it means to be civilized.

Praise For…

“If you’re one of the lucky few whom [Alice Hauptmann] has summoned to tea this month…I strongly urge you to accept.” - New York Times

“Adjmi’s playlet is tiny, but its eloquent, perverse core of coolly rationalized cruelty continues to gain mass and weight in my head.” [Four stars] - Time Out New York
