Special Relationship are back at the Park Theatre with There or Here, Jennifer Maisel’s new play about connections, both real and virtual, when a couple outsource their surrogate pregnancy to an agency in India.
I saw the show on the first preview and it was in fantastic shape, getting a lot of laughs from the get go. And they’ve gone on to get some good notices, especially applauding the entirely female, BAME, and/or LGBTQ+ cast and crew – something you just don’t see enough of on stage.
I sat down and talked to the entire cast, the producers and the playwright backstage at The Park, pre-matinee. That’s a lot of us in a small dressing room, but it was perfectly cozy and a lot of fun.
