Some men get a red Porsche. Some men get a new wife. Herman Kline got something different.

Closed 4 Sep 2011

Prominent NYC trauma doctor Herman Kline is struggling with the tedium of career and marriage. But that's all about to change when he makes a startling discovery while tending to a patient in the ER. From the writer of the 2009 summer hit Al's Business Cards (a "zippy new comedy" according to The New York Times), Herman Kline's Midlife Crisis is a dark, bittersweet – and ultimately heartbreaking new comedy about the bizarre ways in which we deal with our own mortality. Making its U.S. premier, the play recently recieved a production in London by the Old Vic New Voices as part of its inaugural “ Coming Up” Festival.
