Can we talk with the dead? Communicate with loved ones we’ve lost? In this mesmerizing new play by Obie Award-winner Lucas Hnath, Linda promises that you can. If you listen — really listen — she can take you to the thin place, the fragile boundary between our world and the next. Perhaps it’s merely a cunning illusion that awakens our deepest desires, but then again so is this spine-tingling show.

The Thin Place is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.

Simply told and wonderfully acted, The Thin Place draws the audience in and doesn’t let go.  It’s suspenseful, serious when it needs to be and funny when appropriate.  It’s all of these things and something that is a worthwhile evening at the theatre.

Haunting! Compelling and delicious! Hnath’s cunning new ghost story, about a psychic and her client, is a twisty yarn that won’t unravel.
