Null & Void title
– World Premiere

A new play by Charles Gershman.
Directed by Kerry Kastin.
Presented by SNOWY OWL, a NYC-based theater company.

Thad’s wife Jean has all but moved out and into the home of her department chair. In a last-ditch effort to save his marriage, Thad arranges a commission by the painter Jean writes about—and manages to surprise Jean by bringing him into the house. The play asks: when is a painting finished? And when is a marriage done?
