The Other Place features the quick–step narrative of Juliana Smithton, a brilliant research scientist on the cusp of a breakthrough, when her life takes a disorienting turn. During a lecture to colleagues at an exclusive beach resort in the Caribbean, she glimpses an enigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini amid the crowd of business suits. One step at a time a mystery unravels as contradictory evidence, blurred truth and fragmented memories collide in a cottage on the windswept shores of Cape Cod.
Directed and produced by Christy Webb, The Other Place stars distinguished film, television and theatre actors, Chilton Crane as Juliana and Daryl Shuttleworth as Ian, with Avery Crane and Nick Hunnings in supporting roles.
From its debut in 2011, The Other Place received two Outer Critics Circle Award nominations, for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play and Outstanding Actress In A Play (Laurie Metcalf). Metcalf won an Obie Award, for her performance in the original Off Broadway production and then garnered a Tony Award nomination, Best Actress in a Leading Role in a Play for the 2013 Broadway version that premiered in a Manhattan Theatre Club production at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
