Since their breakup, a strip club’s flashing neon sign is keeping Danny awake at night, and Julia’s Adderall addiction has only gotten worse since her dealer moved in. Danny is suffering from micro-blackouts and Julia keeps seeing a giant bird in her backyard. Is anyone watching their kid? Lizzie Vieh’s comedic thriller MONSOON SEASON is a hilarious romantic comedy for a toxic world.
The cast of MONSOON SEASON is led by Richard Thieriot (Broadway: Clybourne Park; Second Stage’s Mary Page Marlowe) as Danny and Therese Plaehn (Broadway/National Tour: The Humans, The Heidi Chronicles) as Julia.
