It’s out with the old and in with the new (sort of). Over a quiet dinner for two, Bill and Nancy serenely decide to divorce after 50 years of marriage. While Nancy, at age 80, finally feels liberated and Bill seems unfazed, their adult sons Brian and Ben don’t exactly take it well. As the “kids” descend on the Grand Horizons senior living community to mediate, everything they thought they knew about their parents comes crashing down. Bess Wohl’s Tony-nominated comedy is a hilarious, heartbreaking commentary on marriage, family, and the wisdom that comes with age—or not. Bursting with all the joy and pathos of everyday life, Grand Horizons is theatre at its most enjoyable and familiar.

Grand Horizons was nominated for Best Play at the 2020 Tony Awards. 


Critical acclaim for Grand Horizons:


“…Grand Horizons is a sweet, sweet delight. It’s carefully made, beautifully acted, and extremely funny, while also asking a few tart questions about comedy itself.”

-- New York Magazine


“… a clever truth bomb of a play… a terrific comedy…I swooned for Grand Horizons, which for all its plot about a marriage’s unforeseen implosion has another matter urgently on its mind…Wohl’s play is a powerful argument for the full humanity of women in our culture - a matter that’s not as settled as we might like to think.” -- The New York Times
