“The How and the Why” at Penguin Rep


“The How and the Why,” a new play by Sarah Treem, writer/producer of HBO’s In Treatment, will be presented October 5 through October 28 at Penguin Rep Theatre in Stony Point, New York.

Staged by artistic director Joe Brancato, “The How and the Why” stars Obie Award winner Gordana Rashovich and Olivia Horton, and will close the nonprofit, professional theatre’s 35th season.

Brancato says “The How and the Why” is “a provocative new work about sex and gender, nature and nurture, love and loss.”

On the eve of a conference, Rachel, a young biologist, wrestles for the truth with Zelda, an established leader in the field. “But the two share more than a passion for science and the choices women of every generation face,” says Brancato, “as the revelation of long-held secrets threatens to change their lives”.

The How and the Why is suggested for mature audiences. A special reduced-priced performance for students is slated for Sunday, October 7 at 7 p.m. (Tickets: $19.50).

Individual tickets to The How and the Why are priced at $39 each. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more and young people (30 and under). To order tickets or for further information, visit Penguin Rep’s website at www.penguinrep.org or call 845-786-2873.
