TUTA Theatre is presenting the NYC premiere of The Edge of Our Bodies with a memorable Off-Broadway staging at 59E59 Theaters. 

April 10, 2018: Carolyn Molloy is Bernadette, in Adam Rapp’s compelling The Edge of Our Bodies, a coming of age tale, which opened last night at 59E59 Theaters. The story is vividly brought to life by the gifted actress in a memorable staging directed by Jacqueline Stone.

Bernadette is a 16-year-old aspiring short story writer on the verge of becoming an adult.  We follow her as she treks by train from her Connecticut boarding school to New York City with a secret to tell her 19-year old boyfriend, she is pregnant. The gritty tale by the acclaimed Pulitzer Prize-finalist is a beautifully written 80- minute look into the life altering events of a lovely young artist as she journeys to maturity and ultimately empowerment.

Robert James Hickey makes a brief appearance as a maintenance man near the end of the evening, otherwise The Edge of Our Bodies is a polished showcase for the lovely Carolyn Molloy, making her Off-Broadway debut.

The design team includes Martin Andrew (scenic design); Keith Parham (lighting design); Branimira Ivanova (costume design); Joe Court (sound design); and Letitia Guillaud (prop design). The Production Stage Manager is Andrew C. Donnelly. Adam Rapp (playwright) is an award-winning playwright and director.
