ABOUT KEEN COMPANY
From three-time Academy Award-winning screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky (Network, Marty and The Hospital) comes MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, a comedy about a May-December romance in 1950’s New York City. When an older Jewish widower and a young gentile bride of another man meet and fall in love, their relationship throws their disapproving families into a tizzy. This long-lost gem from “the poet laureate of the romantically underprivileged” (Theatre Arts) explores “average people…fumbling for the comfort of sheer companionship.” (N.Y. Times).
Now in our 14th season, Keen Company has produced 31 full-length plays and one musical. We have been honored with seven Drama Desk Nominations and one Drama Desk Award, two Obie Awards, a 2005 Special Drama Desk Award “for moving and enlightening audiences with plays that build upon our theatrical heritage,” a Drama League nomination, and a 2008 Obie Grant. Six of our productions have transferred to other theatres.
