YOU GOT OLDER
Mae returns home to help take care of Dad and — maybe (a little) — herself. You Got Older is a tender and darkly comic new play about family, illness, and cowboys — and how to remain standing when everything you know comes crashing down around you.
“★★★★★ Critics’ Pick! Clare Barron’s extraordinary ‘You Got Older’ moved me as few new plays have. Like a great short story, it succeeds through details that…coalesce with a force all the stronger for their subtlety…there are moments in this play I know I won’t forget.” – Time Out- New York
“This terrific new play by Clare Barron…offers a hilarious and painfully affecting blend of oddball dialogue, beautifully observed family dynamics, and a preoccupation with the weird ways of the body… Barron’s special genius lies in the deep dividends she derives from small talk.” – The New Yorker
“[Barron’s] play… blends off-beat, sometimes raunchy comedy into a slowly fused drama…” – The New York Times
