THE SUBSTANCE OF BLISS Nominated for the Arnold Weissberger Award

Tony Glazer's new play THE SUBSTANCE OF BLISS, has been chosen as a finalist for The Arnold Weissberger Award at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.  It is one of five plays selected for the final round.  Stay tuned for more info.

The Substance of Bliss, a new play by Tony Glazer, is the sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking story of two parents, Paul and Donna, who sit in the backyard of their home, late at night, waiting for their troubled fifteen-year-old son to return so that they can take him to a drug rehabilitation center. As they wait, they find themselves questioning their home renovation choices, the political and religious persuasions of some of their neighbors, the feral cats in their yard and, ultimately, their decisions to marry and have the child that is causing them so much trouble. Both insightful and cautionary, the play explores the realities of our consumer driven culture and the essence of happiness.
