Theater: Playwrights Horizons / 416 West 42nd Street, New York, NY, 10036

Synopsis: 

In the play, Katha (Marin Ireland) and Ryu (Louis Ozawa Changchien) have become allergic to their 21st-century lives. After they meet a charismatic man from a community of 1950s re-enactors, they forsake cell phones and sushi for cigarettes and Tupperware parties. In this compulsively authentic world, Katha and Ryu are surprised by what their new neighbors - and they themselves - are willing to sacrifice for happiness.

    Exchanging Lattes for an ‘Ozzie and Harriet’ World

    Charles Isherwood

    December 7, 2011: Is the stress of urban striving shredding your nerves? Do you fight the odd urge to throw the BlackBerry down the nearest manhole? Had it up to here with the overscheduled, information-saturated, distraction-filled frenzy that is contemporary American life?

    ’50s Flashback: Sly Off-Broadway ‘Maple and Vine’ imagines life with white picket fences

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    December 7, 2011: How far would you go to change a life that has become desensitized and traumatized? How about back to 1955 — or, more accurately, a faithfully detailed facsimile?

    An era-neous take on 1950s

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    December 7, 2011: Jordan Harrison’s “Maple and Vine” has one of the most intriguing premises of the year. Katha (the quicksilver Marin Ireland) and Ryu (Peter Kim, stiff and bland) are a 30-something New York couple with thriving careers in book publishing and plastic surgery, respectively. But they’re not happy. One day they drop everything to go live in a Midwestern community of full-time 1950s re-enactors.

    Maple and Vine

    David Sheward

    December 8, 2011: A hit at the 2011 Humana Festival of New American Plays at the Actors Theatre of Louisville this past April, Jordan Harrison's "Maple and Vine" makes its New York debut at Playwrights Horizons and is as funny and trenchant as when I saw it in Kentucky.
