Brooklyn, NY — The Brooklyn College Theater Department presents Sight Unseen, a play by Donald Margulies directed by Mary Beth Easley, in the Gershwin Theater, December 1 to 11. Jonathan Waxman, a rising young American artist, is about to make his European debut. Clients clamor to buy his works, “sight unseen.” But Jonathan yearns for something more, something he cannot define. His soul-searching leads him to a former girlfriend, living near London with her archaeologist husband. Brooklyn-born, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies’ raises questions about the value of art, the role of the artist in society, the price of celebrity, love, betrayal, and the weight of one’s cultural identity.

Performances of Sight Unseen will be held on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m., from December 1 to 11. (There will be no Thursday evening performance on December 8.) Ticket prices are $12 general admission, $10 for senior citizens, and $5 for Brooklyn College students (with validated ID).
