Ben Brantley, CRITIC'S PICK The New York Times
'FOUR STARS! A BRAVURA PIECE OF THEATER WRITING!'

'OUTSTANDING - A DYNAMITE PRODUCTION! RIVETING, PASSIONATE AND UNIQUELY BEAUTIFUL!'
Amid the dreamlike wreckage of their love, a young man and woman battle one another for the future of their relationship. Through a swirling world of fragile memory, high fantasy, brutal wrath, and barbed humor they retrace the history of their love back to its beginnings.
From the playwright of Vincent River (Brits Off Broadway 2008), Tender Napalm takes an unflinching look at love's capacity to weather tragedy and survive in an age of ever-looming terror and uncertainty.
The running time of Tender Napalm is 100 minutes without an intermission.
Please note: There is NO LATE SEATING for Tender Napalm.
