More information about Brooklyn Laundry

The four main characters of the Brooklyn Laundry play are three sisters and the male owner of the title laundromat. The play is also partly a love story between two of the characters: the down-on-his luck Owen and chronically single, financially unstable Fran, who start off disliking each other.

Brooklyn Laundry is Shanley's latest new play since 2021, when he premiered Candlelight at the New Ohio Theatre. It's his 27th total play since his first, Welcome to the Moon, premiered in 1982. All but one of his plays premiered in New York (save his third play, Savage in Limbo, in London).

What to watch for

  • John Patrick Shanley is having a renaissance this season — a "Shanleyssance," if you will. Brooklyn Laundry premieres just after revivals of his early play Danny and the Deep Blue Sea and his Pulitzer-winning masterpiece Doubt.
  • Anyone who's ever quoted "Snap out of it!" a la Cher has Shanley to thank. He won his Oscar for writing the screenplay for Moonstruck.
  • Shanley grew up in the Bronx, so he usually sets his works in the five boroughs. Brooklyn Laundry, of course, is no exception!
  • The last time Shanley directed one of his own plays (The Portuguese Kid) was in 2017, also for Manhattan Theatre Club.
  • More recently, in 2020, Shanley directed a film adaptation of his Best Play Tony nominee, Outside Mullingar. The movie is titled Wild Mountain Thyme and stars Emily Blunt and Jamie Dorman.
