06/01/19: Patience to Premiere at NYC’s Corkscrew Theater Festival!
Though he’s been the world’s #1 ranked Solitaire player since age 20, Daniel is hung up on another title used to describe him: “the Venus Williams of solitaire.” The threat of being eclipsed by a Serena (who just might be the determined up-and-comer Ella) is one of many pressures Daniel carries, alongside his difficulty communicating with his soon-to-be husband, his fraught relationship with his “momager,” and the burden of being excellent in a field that only has room for one excellent person at a time.
Patience is Johnny G. Lloyd’s ingenious portrait of a young black man struggling to build a life with other people when all he’s learned so far is how to be alone.
July 24th - August 3rd
