NEW YORK PREMIERE | May 4 - June 11, 2017
It’s Halloween night, and Miranda is desperate for a way out. She’s drowning in debt, may be falling for the man who pays her bills, and is on the run from her date who has threatened to kill her. When Graham and his fiancé Tanya offer her a safe haven, a door opens, for all of them… but is the promise of a better life a treat or a trick? Two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Gina Gionfriddo (The Vineyard’s AFTER ASHLEY; BECKY SHAW; RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN) brings her unforgettable dark humor to this timely, ferociously funny story of lost souls grappling with emotional and financial dependence, and the costs of the American Dream.
“A WHIMSICAL PIECE OF WORK!
Amber Tamblyn is insistently alive, her outrageously out-there character draws all the light and heat in the room. Darren Pettie is pricelessly funny.”
– Marilyn Stasio, Variety
“GINA GIONFRIDDO HAS A TALENT FOR PUNGENT DIALOGUE.”
– Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
“THE DIALOGUE CRACKLES!
Gionfriddo is terrific. Frank Wood is magnificient!”
– Robert Hofler, The Wrap
“AMBER TAMBLYN MAKES AN OUTSTANDING OFF-BROADWAY DEBUT.
She is intoxicating!”
– Hayley Levitt, TheaterMania
“GIONFRIDDO HAS AN EAR FOR SNAPPY DIALOGUE, WHICH IS ON FULL DISPLAY IN CAN YOU FORGIVE HER?
Frank Wood is superb.”
– David Hurst, Talkin’ Broadway
“A WILD, ENTERTAINING RIDE!
‘Can You Forgive Her?’ Is a devilish screwball comedy. The characters are among the most colorful and quirky you’ll see on the stage this season. Ella Dershowitz is delightful. Amber Tamblyn is terrific.”
– Carol Rocamora, Theater Pizzazz
“GIONFRIDDO HAS A TERRIFIC EAR FOR DIALOGUE, AND AN EYE FOR COMIC TOUCHES”
– Jonathan Mandell, New York Theatre
