Show Info

By Lily Akerman
Directed by Emma Miller

Missing almonds, empty apologies, and a pizza box in the recycling bin that clearly belongs in the trash. When space is at a premium, there’s no room for weak links. The Commons is a play about living with strangers and the things that seem small, until they aren’t.

Following their critically acclaimed New York Times Critic’s Pick production of Athena in 2018, The Hearth continue their commitment to nurturing the next generation of female artists with this world premiere play.

Producing Company

The Hearth

The Hearth tells the stories of women. They nurture and celebrate female and non-binary artists (playwrights, directors, actors, and designers) and develop plays that represent the complex and vast spectrum of womanhood. The Hearth produces plays that explore female characters who pulse with emotional, intellectual, and psychological complexity. They seek to challenge stereotypes, advance and complicate the conversation about feminism, and expand perceptions of what it means to be a woman. They are committed to making room for the next generation of female artists in the landscape of the American theater.
