Mae returns home to help take care of Dad and - maybe (a little) - herself. You Got Older is a tender and darkly comic new play about family, illness, and cowboys - and how to remain standing when everything you know comes crashing down around you.
"Five Stars! Critics' Pick! Clare Barron's extraordinary YOU GOT OLDER moved me as few new plays have. Like a great short story, it succeeds through details that...coalesce with a force all the stronger for their subtlety...there are moments in this play I know I won't forget." - Time Out New York,
"This terrific new play by Clare Barron...offers a hilarious and painfully affecting blend of oddball dialogue, beautifully observed family dynamics, and a preoccupation with the weird ways of the body... Barron’s special genius lies in the deep dividends she derives from small talk." - The New Yorker
