DOMESTICATED, by Bruce Norris, the Pulitzer- and Tony-winning author of CLYBOURNE PARK, dives into the conflagration of gender, power, sexuality and politics that emerges in a private relationship after a public humiliation. In this prescient new play, Laurie Metcalf and Jeff Goldblum play Judy and Bill Pulver whose marriage is thrust into the public eye by scandal. As told by Norris, their story is wickedly funny, deeply serious and anything but predictable.
