Lost Lake

Veronica (Tracie Thoms) deserves a break. She’s on the verge of losing her job at a nursing job in New York City, her husband has recently passed, and she has two kids to take care of. To get away from it all, she surveys a cabin by the lake in hopes of planning a family vacation. But the only place she can afford is ramshackle at best. The cabin’s owner, Hogan (John Hawkes), promises to fix it up in time for the family’s arrival, but Veronica’s not so sure he’ll keep his end of the bargain. Still, the two develop a hesitant kinship as they share the details of their downtrodden lives, slowly growing closer in a story that playwright David Auburn describes as a “melancholic comedy.” Steered by the powerful performances of its accomplished leads and fueled by Auburn’s witty and engrossing dialogue, Lost Lake isn’t about romance, action, or fairytales; it’s a slice-of-life story about two lost souls finding a connection.

Making its world premiere at the City Center, the play reunites Auburn with director Daniel J. Sullivan after his Tony-Award winning take on Auburn’s Proof, which garnered the Pulitzer back in 2001. The performers have equally impressive résumés. Oscar-nominated indie-film staple John Hawkes (Winter’s Bone) makes his New York stage debut in the role of Hogan, and Tracie Thoms (Rent, Stick Fly) brings decades of stage and screen experience to the part of Veronica.

Manhattan Theatre Club

Since 1970, the Manhattan Theatre Club has incubated many of the greatest theatrical works of the 20th and 21st century, from Ain't Misbehavin' to Crimes of the Heart and Proof. However, none of these scripts sprung from a quest for fame and prestige. Rather, they were a result of MTC's passion for commissioning new work and nurturing fresh talent. This emphasis on the playwright has paid off, as Manhattan Theatre Club has grown from a modest Off-Off-Broadway showcase into a powerhouse theater organization that's racked up 19 Tony Awards, 6 Pulitzer Prizes, 32 Drama Desks, and 48 Obies.
