Don't Quit Your Night Job began in 2006 at Joe's Pub. The one-off benefit grew into a ten-month, sold-out run, and a commercial Off-Broadway production followed in 2007. Subsequently, Don't Quit Your Night Job has played the Zipper Factory, The Julia Miles Theater and (le) Poisson Rouge.
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.
