In NYLON, an estranged couple meet for the first time in four years. During this combustive encounter, their past is dredged to the surface in a way that ruptures their carefully constructed personas and sets in motion a psychological tennis match that threatens their respective futures as well of those of everyone around them.
From the playwright: NYLON is a play about a woman who is both incredibly composed but also someone who has little to no control over her impulses. Unable to find equilibrium between these two sides of herself she fears her carefully manicured life is starting to unravel only to find she’s actually trapped in the box she’s created. I wrote NYLON to explore the choices available to women. There are others, both men and women, ready to criticize and take away women’s choices at every turn - but often the worst critic we encounter is our own mind.
