From Across The River: The Shelter’s ‘Cul-de-Sac’


In the summer of 2013, The Shelter tasked three of its most talented and exciting writers with a unique, collaborative challenge: using a palette of assigned characters, meld individually written stories into a single, seamless play. Six characters, three writers, one narrative.

Nine months later, CUL-DE-SAC was born. Examining the lives of three couples living as neighbors on a suburban cul-de-sac, writers Rachel Carey, Beth Jastroch and Bob Kolsby use marriage as a forum to examine the shifting gender norms, cultural expectations and everyday realities faced by today’s young couples. They show us that what happens behind closed doors can often surprise us, challenging our beliefs about love, passion and the fidelity of marriage.

Directed by The Shelter's Co-Artistic Director, Michael Kingsbaker, CUL-DE-SAC stars Kelley Gates, Meghan E. Jones, Jordan Kenneth Kamp, C. J. Lindsey, Morgan McGuire and Aaron Novak.

The show runs May 29 - June 8 at the historic Cherry Lane Theatre in the West Village. “Due to the limited number of performances for this extraordinary show, we encourage you to purchase tickets early.”
