Haunted by his own childhood, a psychologist tries to minister to the distressed souls who find their way to the doors of the health center he runs in rural Connecticut.

“What every playwright wants to know is that the people doing their play will love it and care for it. I watched The Gift do a cold read of Good For Otto and was thrilled by what they did and revealed; the level of their acting is exceptional. Given their previous productions of my work as well as their strong reputation of supporting new plays, I’m excited by this opportunity to work with The Gift on the world premiere of Good For Otto. It needs a true ensemble with heart and smart, humor and hurt, and that is precisely what The Gift is.”—David Rabe

Chicago Tribune

Chicago Sun-Times
