November 7, 2015 - December 6, 2015

We welcome German writer Maria Milisavljevic for her U.S. debut with ABYSS. Maria Mileaf, who led our productions of MONSIUER IBRAHIM AND THE FLOWERS OF THE KORAN (2003) and SAKHARAM BINDER (2004), directs this tense and haunting play.

“An emotionally powerful thriller that rustles and whispers about loss”
– Der Spiegel

Karla disappears after going out to buy groceries. The police aren’t inclined to take the case seriously – young people go missing every day, only to turn up again after a week of hard partying – so her friends undertake the search themselves. As they delve into the mystery, we’re drawn ever more deeply into the profound bond they share, which sets them apart from the city around them.
