When Annie and Peter decide to adopt, they set their sights on a child from Africa. But as the reality of this choice sinks in, it sparks an uncertainty that speaks to their very identity as White Americans. Acutely funny and tack-sharp, The Call is a startling portrait of cultural divide, casting global issues into the heart of an American home.


Co-produced with Playwrights Horizons at their Peter Jay Sharp Theater, this world premiere will be directed by Leigh Silverman (Chinglish on Broadway, Hunting and Gathering at Primary Stages).


On May 10, there will be a post-show talkback with Worldwide Orphans (WWO). Click here to learn about the WWO.
