Set in Cleveland, Lisa Langford’s THE ART OF LONGING follows the lives of six “third-shift” people—those who guard and take care while the rest of us sleep. The characters’ secrets mask deeply held yearnings that manifest in fantastical abilities and anatomical switch-ups. Race, gender and the nature of art are at the focal point of this theatrical experiment. THE ART OF LONGING fashions a world where dreams and reality interpenetrate each other.
