Stillby NYC playwright Jen Silverman, won the 2013 Yale Drama Series Prize, and is the devastating and hilarious story of a professor, her midwife, a dominatrix, and a baby who never got to be. Morgan's son was stillborn, Dolores is pregnant with a child she doesn't want, and failed midwife Elena seeks either redemption or a career change. All three women confront their fears, desires, and each other, while Morgan's baby is running out of time to find her.

"The imagination and depth of humanity on display in Still grabs you right from the beginning of the experience, in something between a headlock and a hug. An honest, compelling story, without a sentimental bone in its body."  - Mitchell Cushman, Outside the March

"Very pleasantly surprised by Still, as I went into the theatre knowing little except that the play was about a woman whose child is stillborn, and another woman with an unwanted pregnancy, so expected something quite heavy, but instead saw a show that was quite sweet and delightful, strongly directed with touching performances all around." - Derrick Chua, Theatre Producer

"If you're a person who breathes, you'd probably like this show. If you're a person who thinks, you need to see it...slick, smart, and unpretentious." - B. Hayward (Patron)

"Wow...an exquisitely funny and deeply moving play...an unmissable treasure." - J. Beck (patron)
