In 1928, American master Edward Hopper painted Night Windows, three windows of a city apartment offering a fractured, voyeuristic glimpse into the private world of a feminine figure in a pink slip.
Three playwrights from The Shelter have lent their diverse talents to the task of adapting this haunting image for the stage. Together, this trio of one-act plays offers a soulful, comical and otherworldly tribute to this timeless, nocturnal masterpiece.
“Hopper was an enthusiastic theater-goer. The continuous curve of the outer sill in the foreground of Night Windows is like the edge of a stage beyond which the scene within the room unfolds.” — Helen M. Franc, An Invitation to See: 150 Works from The Museum of Modern Art.
