Produced by

The Empty Room

Playwright: Sarah Ruhl

The Collective Space


January 29th, 2015 – January 8th, 2015


Melancholy Play, a contemporary farce with music, unravels society’s fear and judgment of deep human emotion.

It is with great pleasure that The Empty Room presents Sarah Ruhl’s Melancholy Play and furthers the much-needed discussion of mental health and depression in our city.  (
