MERRY ME at New York Theatre Workshop

By Hansol Jung
Directed by Leigh Silverman
2023/24 SEASON

October 11, 2023—November 19, 2023

NYTW Usual Suspect & Former 2050 Artistic Fellow Hansol Jung‘s Merry Me is an intoxicating queer cocktail of restoration comedy and the Greeks, served with a heavy garnish of ridiculous. NYTW Usual Suspect & Tony Award nominee Leigh Silverman directs.

On an island not far away from the vulnerable coasts of the enemy state, a mysterious blackout has left the Navy restless and itching for action. Lieutenant Shane Horne has occupied her time satisfying the libidinous needs of all the women on the base—including the jealous general’s wife. But her own merries will not… come. Meanwhile, a famed Angel re-descends to amend her previous prophecy, sending the Navy’s psychiatrist on an epic quest to save humanity. Will the general discover the affair? Will the earth be saved? Will they ever be merry enough?

ADMISSION TO MERRY ME STARTS AT $25, so grab your tickets!
