Photos: Jonah and Otto Opening Night Party

Wednesday, February 8 saw the opening night of Jonah and Otto, the New York debut of playwright Robert Holman at The Lion Theatre at Theatre Row, 410 West 42 Street. Under the direction of Geraldine Hughes, Jonah and Otto stars Sean Gormley (Aristocrats, The Devil’s Disciple, Person of Interest, Treme) and Rupert Simonian (Foyle’s War, Ashes to Ashes, Murdoch Mysteries, The Constant Gardner).


In 2003, Jonah is 26, Otto, 57 – two men different in every way. But not everything is what it seems when their two lives collide one summer's night in a mysterious walled garden on the south coast of England. As their stories of love and loss unravel in front of us and memories of the past unturned come to light, on parting, neither can be the same again. Robert Holman's "intricately layered creation, brimming with emotional wonder" (The Independent) is a deeply humane, funny and ultimately haunting exploration of what it is to be alive.
