In The Comeuppance, the latest from “one of this country's most original and illuminating writers” (The New York Times), a self-proclaimed “Multi-Ethnic Reject Group” reconvenes for the first time in years to pregame for their twentieth high school reunion. They refamiliarize themselves with new versions of old selves over alcohol, other substances and a not-so-innocent truth-telling game. Meanwhile, Death looms over and speaks through them, describing their disquieting and darkly comedic pasts and futures.
Join the reunion at the latest play from Obie Award-winning playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins. Get The Comeuppance tickets now, and watch a revelatory high school reunion unfold.
The Comeuppance play isn't exactly set at the reunion, though, but right before it, when a small group of old classmates get together to pregame. They all used to have lots in common, but everything they shared is just a memory now. The group now includes a former politician's wife, an overworked NYC journalist, a veteran Marine; an expat artist, and a familial caretaker. None are particularly happy with their lives, so dark truths come out over alcohol and not-so-innocent games.
Jacobs-Jenkins is best known for his Obie-winning play An Octoroon and his Pulitzer-nominated plays Gloria and Everybody. For The Comeuppance off Broadway, he teams up with director Eric Ting, who most recently directed the world premiere of Lloyd Suh's Pulitzer-nominated play The Far Country.
Get your comeuppance — and get your tickets — at The Comeuppance in New York.
