@ The Flea Theater – 41 White Street
The Flea Theater and The Civilians present the New York Premiere of You Better Sit Down: Tales from My Parents’ Divorce. Four members of The Civilians sat their parents down and asked them for the real story behind their divorces. Each actor assumes the role of their own mother or father (or in one case, both) in a show crafted entirely from those verbatim interviews. The show is shockingly candid, and proves that what we want to know about our parents’ lives and what we actually should know are two totally different things.
