Playdate

Presented by Dixon Place

A NEW PLAY BY KALLAN DANA | DIRECTED BY ERICA ZIPPEL SCHNITZER

about the show

Hugh Hefner wakes up one morning and realizes that his home doesn’t feel like his home anymore. His kids are keeping secrets from him, his Bunnies are nowhere to be found, and his house is haunted by ghosts and demons. It’s the last day of Mr. Hefner’s life, but before his entire empire crumbles to the ground, he’ll have to face his sons, his first wife, his twin-sister girlfriends, and the spirit of Marilyn Monroe.

Playdate is a meta-theatrical dark comedy that interrogates patriarchal and capitalist structures, examines questions of women’s agency and autonomy, and reimagines the Playboy Mansion not as it is in reality, but as it exists in dreams and nightmares.

Performances September 26-28, 2019 at 7:30pm. 

Location Dixon Place. 161A Chrystie Street. New York, NY 10002.
