Bring Them Back, a meta dark comedy by David Willinger at Theater for the New City
Screenwriter Paul is still sheltering in place long after the Covid threat, only sometimes visited by his schleppy older family friend, Trudy. Now of a certain age, Paul realizes that more people he has known are dead than alive. With amusing desperation, and against Trudy’s better judgement, Paul resolves to bring them back using a medieval Cabalistic ritual that never works due to his countless mistakes. Nevertheless, random affinity groups of dead former friends, family, enemies, and lovers of both sexes begin to appear. Is it all in his mind? Is it on the page? How do these unorthodox methods satisfy Paul's desire to resolve unfinished business?

David Willinger directs a cast of two, including Paul Korzinski and Carole Forman*.

Performances for Bring Them Back are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm.
