Summer, 1976

Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Auburn (Proof, The Columnist) brings Summer, 1976, his latest collaboration with director David Auburn, to Manhattan Theatre Club after the two helmed the award-winning Proof on Broadway in 2000. Check back to see when Summer, 1976 tickets will be on sale on New York Theatre Guide.

Summer, 1976 is a deeply moving, tenderly insightful new play about friendship, memory, and the small moments that can change the course of our lives forever. Over one fateful summer, an unlikely friendship develops between Diana, a fiercely iconoclastic artist and single mom, and Alice, a free-spirited yet naive young housewife. As the Bicentennial is celebrated across the country, these two young women in Ohio navigate motherhood, ambition, and intimacy, and help each other discover their own independence. 

This production is the play's world premiere.
