The Wanderers


The Wanderers

Globe-commissioned world premiere
By Anna Ziegler
Directed by Barry Edelstein

A Globe-commissioned world premiere from the celebrated writer of The Last Match. Esther and Yoni are shy young Orthodox Jews embarking on an arranged marriage, despite barely knowing each other. Abe and Julia are high-profile celebrities embarking on a dangerously flirtatious correspondence, despite being married to other people. On the surface, the lives of these two couples couldn’t be more different. But Anna Ziegler’s funny, insightful, and mysterious new drama explores the hidden connections between seemingly disparate people, drawing audiences into an intriguing puzzle and a deeply sympathetic look at modern love.

The Wanderers is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.

The Wanderers is supported in part by a lead underwriting grant from the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation. It is also supported in part through gifts from Production Sponsors Sheila and Jeffrey Lipinsky, Laurents / Hatcher Foundation, Paula and Brian Powers, and The Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Fund. Additional funding has been provided by the Edgerton Foundation.
