A goat comes along and eats it and the flower is no more.”

According to popular culture, 30 is the new 20, but the body and soul often disagrees. Meet Nikolai Ivanov. He just turned 30. His wife is dying. The young, blossoming woman next door is much too attractive. His neighbors are gossiping nonstop about him. His closest friends are—well, let’s just say they’re caught up in other issues. And above it all, the crushing melancholy and weariness of not-so-middle age threatens to extinguish the remnants of his hope and pride at any moment. So what’s a man to do? What can any of us do when life just becomes too much to bear?
PS. This is a comedy. We promise.
Tickets available at SmartTix at (212) 868-4444 or www.smarttix.com at $18 apiece, but feel free to use our discount code HTTCFF for members of the HTTC community in order to purchase $10 tickets
You also have the opportunity to participate in HTTC’s outreach program. With a name and mission statement that focuses on hungering for theatre, it seems only appropriate that HTTC focuses their outreach on those who hunger for basic food necessities on a day-to-day basis.
Therefore for Ivanov, we will be collecting donations for Daisy's Food Pantry (Hope for Our Neighbors in Need) which is hosted by Church of the Village. Patrons are encouraged to bring canned foods and other goods that we will collect at the door (more information about what specific items are most in need will be posted at www.hungerandthirsttheatre.com).
To thank you for your generosity, after making your donation, you will be able to purchase a ticket for Ivanov at half-price ($9). This offer is only available to walk-up patrons who are willing to pay in.
