By Heidi Schreck
Directed by Ronan Marra
After a series of brutal layoffs at Sutton, Feingold and McGrath, a precocious young consultant is brought in to save a middle-aged ad man's job, and maybe his life. Following the world premiere at Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven, The Consultant is an incisive, hilarious and dark look at contemporary corporate culture.

"Ronan Marra's direction plays to the strengths I've seen over and over with the company, particularly in the confident interplay between the characters and the commitment to creating worlds just slightly askew of normal."
Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune
RECOMMENDED "Ronan Marra's production finds value and beauty in getting shitcanned, no matter how unceremoniously."
