About Us

Theater is for everyone and we want to make it available everywhere. Soundstage is an anthological, scripted fiction series of portable stories from Playwrights Horizons theater in New York City. Featuring short-form commissions from America’s best playwrights, these audio experiences are written specifically for the ear, not translated or recorded live from the stage. Now, the theater is wherever you are. Follow us at @SoundstagePH on Instagram and Twitter. If you like what you hear and want to support this program, we hope you will consider making a donation that will allow us to commission more artists, complete production on more podcasts, and continue to provide our writers with a much-needed creative outlet and an audience in these unprecedented times. To support us, visit bit.ly/SoundstageDonate or text SOUNDSTAGE20 to 44-321.

NIGHTNIGHT by Lucas Hnath

An astronaut goes to space. He can’t sleep. He can’t tell anyone. He can’t go home. He’s lonely. He doesn’t want to leave. He’s in trouble. NIGHTNIGHT takes the audience into mission control and into outer space to overhear ordinary workplace conflict in an extraordinary environment.

PLAY FOR ANY TWO PEOPLE: Person 1

The first thing you have to know about this podcast, is that you can’t listen to it alone. You need a partner. If you haven't yet, go back and listen to the introduction track that should be just above this in your Soundstage feed - there's important instructions there.You and your partner will be listening to two different, but simultaneous tracks. One of you should pick Person 1 and the other should pick Person 2. When you’re ready to begin, both you and your partner will press Play at exactly the same time. (You could even do a countdown: Three, two, one and go.) See you on the other side...
