“Why are you like an almond?”

Melancholy Play by Sarah Ruhl challenges the traditional conception of melancholia and depression in its whimsical world, where falls in love with the melancholy Tilly but falls out of love with her when she becomes ‘cured’ of her melancholia. They explore what it means to be suffer beautifully – so what if people prefer looking out windows nostalgicallly and stick their hands in the rain forlornly? In this world of separated twins, Italian psychiatrists and invisible cello players, Melancholy Play will show how each and every one of us should be like an almond.

Written by two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl, this charmingly offbeat production will bring you on a wild ride, leaving you perplexed, intrigued, but always wanting for more.
