A Play by Leslye Headland

Directed by Trip Cullman


Playwright Leslye Headland and director Trip Cullman, who collaborated on Second Stage Uptown’s hit comedy Bachelorette, will return to Second Stage Theatre this summer with the world premiere of The Layover. This will be the final production of the 2015-16 mainstage season. 


Ever wonder who that stranger is sitting next to you? What is their story? What are they hiding? Shellie and Dex dare to answer these questions after their flight is delayed on a snowy Thanksgiving night. What they discover about themselves, and each other, sends both of their lives into upheaval. A psychological drama from the darkly funny writer of Bachelorette, The Layover asks the question: Can you ever really get to know somebody when you're hiding so much yourself?
