The Call


Event Attributes


By Tanya Barfield

Directed by Eleanor Holdridge

When Annie and Peter decide to adopt, they set their sights on a child from Africa. But just how much of Africa are they willing to bring into their home? Long-buried secrets surface, surprising new tensions with old friends arise, and their marriage is put to the test — all in the face of one startling choice. With keen acumen, this portrait of cultural divide casts global issues into the heart of an American home.

“A thoughtful and engrossing new play.” — The New York Times

Playwrights Horizons, Inc., New York City, and Primary Stages produced the World Premiere of The Call Off-Broadway in 2013.
