“Men aren’t afraid of dying, but they are afraid of not being remembered…”

Over the course of a parent/teacher conference, a grieving mother and an emotionally overwhelmed primary school teacher have a fraught conversation about the tragic suicide of the mother's son, Gidion. Gidion may have been bullied severely—or he may have been an abuser. As his story is slowly uncovered, the women try to reconstruct a satisfying explanation for Gidion's act and come to terms with excruciating feelings of culpability.

HOW TO GET INTO BUILDINGS takes an exploded view of love, in which confusion blends with confidence, time keeps shifting, amateurs are experts, and brunch can be fatal.

As a blueprint for her play, Harnetiaux used the structure of exploded view: an illustration or diagram used in manuals (for lawnmowers, bicycles, computers) that shows an object’s parts apart from the whole, but in positions that indicate their relationship to it. Roger and Lucy meet in a convention hall, Daphne and Nick break down at a diner, their stories intertwine as the play swirls around you, rotating on its axis, to articulate the experience of love, with its alternating moments of intimacy and isolation.

Coming off of their Obie Award winning production of A Beautiful Day in November on the Banks of the Great Lakes at City Center in January and the critically acclaimed Heartbreak at The Bushwick Starr in
