Threshold Repertory Theater's seventh season starts on Sept. 1 with Becky Shaw, an Obie Award-winner and Pulitzer Prize finalist. If that's not enticing enough, Becky Shaw's writer-producer, Gina Gionfriddo, has written for both Law & Order and House of Cards.

Jay Danner, Threshold Rep's new artistic director, calls Becky Shaw "really provocative." The play is about a newlywed couple who fix up two of their romantically-challenged friends during an evening that takes a dark turn. "There's firecracker dialogue," says Danner. "The moral ground constantly shifts under the characters' feet. You're not sure who you're rooting for."

The play starts on Thurs. Sept. 1 and runs until Sun. Sept. 18. Get your tickets here.
