"A Parallelogram introduces us to Bee, who believes she has the ability to know what happens in the future," press notes state. "With what appears like a little time-bending she sees how her life, and that of her boyfriend and the world at large, will play out. To the increasing concern of those around her, Bee tries to make sense of this new-found knowledge. Should she try to reinvent destiny or is the trajectory of life basically unalterable?"
The creative team for A Parallelogram includes Todd Rosenthal (set design), Alex Jaeger (costumes), James F. Ingalls (lighting) and Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen (sound). Casting is by Erica Daniels, Erika Sellin and Mark B. Simon, and the production stage manager is David S. Franklin.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
