“An Intervention”
Williamstown Theatre Festival; Nikos Stage
August 12 – August 23

By Mike Bartlett
Directed by Lila Neugebauer

A whole lot of booze, a new girlfriend, and government involvement in a foreign war are just some of the factors that threaten to drive a massive wedge between two people. Can they close the ever-widening gap in their relationship, or have they reached a breaking point?

Featuring rotating pairs of world-class actors, each performance of An Intervention will reveal new meaning inside this theatrical, mischievous, and engrossing two-hander from Olivier Award-winning playwright Mike Bartlett that puts personal and political intervention under a magnifying glass.

Each cast of “An Intervention” brings a stunningly singular dynamic and reveals remarkable new meaning.

Cast 1: Josh Hamilton & Justin Long
Cast 2: Betty Gilpin & Debargo Sanyal
