"David Adjmi was called "virtuosic" by the New York Times, one of the "best and most original theatre artists of a generation" by Vogue, and one of the Top Ten in Culture by The New Yorker magazine. His play Marie Antoinette is a raw, fantastical, and funny work about a moment in time when the political suddenly became very personal. Bold, biting, and hilarious, this play about the famous spoiled queen holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death. Adjmi's second piece, 3C, is inspired by 1970s sitcoms, 1950s existential comedy, Chekhov and Disco anthems. 3C is a terrifying yet amusing look at a culture that likes to amuse itself, even as it teeters on the brink of ruin. Praise for Marie Antoinette "Impeccable timeliness. One cannot deny how it speaks to today's class war between the haves and have-notes. Marie Antoinette is bracing, fresh theater."--New Haven Register "Adjmi's brilliance is to use trashy vernacular speech to allude to the way history trashes us."--New Yorker Praise for 3C "Pitch-perfect."--New York Post "Bracing and provocative."--Entertainment Weekly David Adjmi's plays include 3C, Elective Affinities, Stunning, The Evildoers, Caligula, and Strange Attractors. He was awarded a 2011 Guggenheim Fellowship, the Whiting Writers' Award, the Kesselring Fellowship, a Steinberg Playwright Award, and the Bush Artist Fellowship, among others."--
