Arthur and Esther 

By Ross Howard †

Directed by Jerry Heymann

"Arthur and Esther is like an intimate art house film, well-written and well-executed, with two excellent performers."
- Theatre is Easy

A laid off librarian wrestles with suicide methods that hurt the least, while his wife waits impatiently. But where does she wait?  A play of two worlds, this elemental and affecting two-hander explores love, loss and the lives we inherit and impose on others.
