Synopsis: 

A forgotten chorus boy (David Greenspan) from the theater of Ancient Greece, stuck in a lonely purgatory these past 2000 years, is sent back to earth on a mission from God. He now finds himself among a vacationing family in the Hamptons, caught off-guard by his re-discovered ability to feel love. Go Back To Where You Are is a melancholy comic romance, told with Greenspan's unique brand of theatrical wit and exquisite lyricism.

    From Amphitheater Bit Player to God’s Errand Boy

    Charles Isherwood

    April 12, 2011: David Greenspan plays a demon sent spinning through time on a mission of salvation in “Go Back to Where You Are,” his endearingly daffy new play at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Playwrights Horizons. This particular demon was originally a failed actor from ancient Greece named Passalus, and on his sojourn in the 21st century he finds it useful to transform himself into a genteel British matron and former actress named Constance Simmons. All of this whimsy means that Mr. Greenspan the playwright has concocted a honey of a part for Mr. Greenspan the actor, one that allows him to deploy multiple voices and display multiple facets of his baroque, androgynous stage persona.

    Go Back to Where You Are

    Marilyn Stasio

    April 12, 2011: As the people at this house party keep noting in asides to the audience: "There's no chronology to this play." True enough. There's also no definitive sense of place, or even a clear delineation of character, as the individual players in this well-cast ensemble keep slipping out of their roles to emerge in other parts. In fact, as one character takes care to inform us, the play isn't even written yet, because the playwright is "still looking for a form to tell this story."

    Jennifer Farrar

    April 13, 2011: Sometimes the only way to make a fresh start is to face what you most fear; although some divine intervention on your behalf wouldn't hurt.

    Veteran playwright David Greenspan brings modern twist to ancient play 'Go Back to Where You Are'

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    April 13, 2011: "This is kind of a weird play," announces the actor portraying Bernard, a dramatist, in "Go Back to Where You Are." The term "fantastical" also comes up. No wonder. The 70-minute one-act by David Greenspan at Playwrights Horizons follows modern-day theater folks who are visited by a dead Greek actor on a mission from God.

    ‘Go Back to Where You Are’ opens at Playwrights Horizons

    Michael Sommers

    April 13, 2011: David Greenspan is a unique presence on New York's theatrical landscape. He's played many support roles on and Off-Broadway and with his unique mannerisms and way of speaking often adds memorable touches of humor (his Queen Elizabeth in Rarah Rule's Orlando and his butler in The Royal Family come to mind).
