4th Wall Theatre presents Lobby Hero
4th Wall Theatre will stage the Houston premiere of Lobby Hero, written by acclaimed playwright and Manchester by the Sea’s Academy Award-winning director/screenwriter, Kenneth Lonergan.
Lonergan’s mesmerizing dramedy was nominated for a Drama Desk Award, Olivier Award, and Outer Critics Circle Award for best play. As the story unfolds and the tensions rise in the lobby of a Manhattan apartment building, we learn how Jeff, a hapless young security guard, his supervisor, an overbearing police officer, and his young female partner are all drawn into a murder investigation. When Jeff’s tightly wound supervisor is called to bear witness against his troubled, brother, and the attractive rookie cop finds she must stand up to her seasoned partner, loyalties are strained to the breaking point. Truth becomes elusive and justice proves costly.
