Synopsis: 

A prison sentence isn't over once you leave jail. Having just begun to rebuild a life on the outside, Marie (Alison Pill) is confronted with her past when former cellmate Lorraine (Edie Falco) shows up unannounced on her doorstep. The two outcasts, once so close on the inside, struggle to navigate a friendship beyond the prison walls - which may threaten their prospects to start over. Chloe Moss's This Wide Night is a heartfelt and witty portrait of two lost souls trying to find their way in an unforgiving world. Anne Kauffman directs.

    Two Ex-Cellmates Disoriented by Time

    Ben Brantley

    May 17, 2010: Even without reading Einstein, anyone who lives past the age of 2 figures out that time and space are relative. (When did my bedroom shrink? How did last year disappear so fast?) But rarely do you get to see this law of physics demonstrated with the artistry and emotional impact that Edie Falco and Alison Pill bring to it in “This Wide Night,” Chloë Moss’s deceptively slim two-character play at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater.

    Freedom Tests a Bond Formed Behind Bars

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    May 17, 2010: Edie Falco and Alison Pill are among the most likable of ac tresses, able to communicate emotion with unfussy directness. And so it's a genuine pleasure to see them share a stage -- especially one as intimate as Playwrights Horizons' smaller venue -- under rising director Anne Kauffman

    This Wide Night

    Brian Scott Lipton

    May 17, 2010: The plight of two female ex-cons struggling to adapt to life on the outside is the subject of Chloe Moss' This Wide Night, now getting an earnest U.S. production from Naked Angels at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater -- one that benefits greatly from thoroughly believable performances by Edie Falco and Alison Pill.

    This Wide Night

    Erik Haagensen

    May 17, 2010: Sometimes modest can be marvelous, and such is the case with Chloë Moss' new two-hander, "This Wide Night," getting its American premiere from Naked Angels after winning the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize in England. Moss knows exactly what she's about and executes it simply, cleanly, and affectingly, aided by Anne Kauffman's sensitive direction and two piercing performances from Edie Falco and Alison Pill. Her story of two ex-cons trying to forge new lives in the world is not new, nor is her style, a sort of elliptical realism. But truth is always new, and Moss delivers that aplenty.

    This Wide Night

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    May 17, 2010: A satisfying slice of kitchen-sink realism, "This Wide Night" follows Lorraine (Edie Falco) and Marie (Alison Pill), who are trying to get on with life after being released from an English prison. In some ways, it recalls Marsha Norman's "Getting Out," but British playwright Chloe Moss breathes fresh life into the subject with a tough and tender story that flows like an indie movie. Over 85 minutes and 11 scenes set in Marie's squalid flat, the women's lives and relationship - past and present - slowly come into focus. It's not a very pretty picture.
