Nate and Laurel are a comfortably married, Upper West Side couple – until Nate’s wayward brother Hal arrives from Hollywood. What at first seems a casual visit, a chance to reconnect, is quickly revealed as something more ominous. Hal may have had success, but human connection is all that matters, and he intends to make connections – no matter who pays the price. THREE CHANGES is a funny and darkly suspenseful look at the joy of family, and how far we’ll go to get it.

A born playwright, Nicky Silver is a creator of language that unscrolls across the stage like luminous skywriting. His instinctive theatrical gracefulness is still in evidence in Three Changes.—Ben Brantley, The New York Times
Fiercely good acting and the taut direction of Wilson Milam make for a gripping experience. Maura Tierney shines.—Robert Feldberg, The Record
Scott Cohen creates both the charm and the meanness of psychopathic Hal. Dylan McDermott gives one of the best performances of his career.—Alexis Greene, The Hollywood Reporter
