Seven vignettes in the orbit of a very large desk

TALK BACK with Ned & Chelsea after the June 8 performance.

The Giant Desk Plays is about life in the orbit of a really, really, really big desk. Four actors weave in and out of seven scenes, taking on fifteen characters across a variety of desk-related existential prepositions (in, around, under, on). The Giant Desk is everything. The Giant Desk is nothing. Maybe you’re living near a Giant Desk right now? Join us to find out.
