In Extraordinary Things, according to press notes, "a photographer brings her subject to a cold basement, and later meets her ex-lover in an old grungy bar hangout. They all circle each other, looking for weaknesses and testing strengths, as they try to navigate a desperate city landscape not far in the future in which the lines of life and death, success and failure, are drawn in stark and unforgiving terms."
Talbott's play was commissioned and written specifically for the intimate basement space of downtown restaurant Jimmy's No. 43 at Seventh Street Small Stage.
