By Kenneth Lonergan
Directed by C. Michael Wright
Jeff is the night security guard in a Manhattan high-rise, as clumsy in life and as he is in his affections for the rookie cop Dawn. Only she's got eyes for her partner Bill, a corrupt cop who is two-timing with the woman in 22 J. When Jeff's supervisor and mentor William comes to him with a moral dilemma, Jeff's loyalty is put to the test. Lobby Hero is a vivid slice of contemporary life following four ordinary people caught up in extraordinary circumstances. Playwright Kenneth Lonergan, best known for his stunning film You Can Count on Me, is one of the most distinctive and intriguing young voices in America. C. Michael Wright, who's Rep directing credits include A Night in November and How I Learned to Drive, takes the helm of this exciting play.
