By Oren Safdie
Directed by Leon Rubin

An architecture student. Her thesis. The jury. Capturing the full character of architectural discourse, PRIVATE JOKES, PUBLIC PLACES offers a disturbing yet humorous glimpse inside the contemporary world of architecture. Margaret, a young Korean-American student, presents her thesis for a public swimming pool to an all-male jury of famous architects. Safdie, a former architecture student at Columbia University and the son of prominent architect Moshe Safdie, uses this simple premise as a jumping-off point for a facile examination of academia, intellectual pretension and the failure of postmodernist culture. The play asks compelling questions about the state of the male/female power struggle, fears of disrupting the status quo and ultimately the importance of challenging tradition.

‘Inspired and astonishing ? The verbal dexterity alone is mesmerizing. A battle of wits.’
‘A biting satire with a humanist heart. A take?no?prisoners comedy.’
‘The funniest new play to hit New York in months. ’
