This Beautiful Future

This Beautiful Future will play at the Cherry Lane Theatre for six weeks in fall 2022. This Beautiful Future tickets will be available on New York Theatre Guide soon. 

Caught in the middle of a war, two teenagers take shelter from a divided world. Elodie is French and 17. Otto, a German soldier, is 16. Safe from the debris outside, they meet secretly for one night. They talk, tease, and touch. They fall in love and fall through time. Kalnejais’ kaleidoscopic play is a story of uncomplicated first love in a very complicated world. It seeks out tenderness amidst tragedy, and hope in the hopeless.

Tickets to This Beautiful Future on New York Theatre Guide are available soon.
