“I love boundaries.
I just don’t do them myself.

An obnoxious, caustic, oblivious New York family has to deal with their dying son and a complete stranger who insists on making an “amend.” Can they suppress their resentment toward each other––and toward their son’s irascible charge nurse––long enough to hear a cry for help?

Featuring Caroline Aaron, Shaun Anthony, Tony DeCarlo, Dagney Kerr, Ericka Kreutz, Joe Pacheco, Doug Sutherland

REVIEWS

“Edlow has a powerhouse hit here… Schnipper’s cast play it all up to the edge of insanity, lowering the volume and intensity just before going over the top. It’s a lesson in comic acting to watch Aaron and company play up the (heightened) realities and allow us the audience to sit back and laugh.” – Edge Media Network

“What a witty script! What a fine cast! … Circle X Theatre’s world premiere of playwright Fielding Edlow’s ‘ICU’ immediately grabs your attention the moment you enter and take a seat in the waiting room of an unnamed New York hospital.” – BroadwayWorld

“‘ICU’ is a tsunami of side splitting, grin growing festival of unstoppable laughter…That playwright Fielding Edlow has exposed herself as a true genius with the world premiere of ‘ICU’ is undeniable, but the total production is also greatly enhanced by exquisite performances from the entire cast… They all came together under the obviously superb direction Brian Shnipper to deliver what is undeniably one the best shows in town.” – Examiner.com

“ICU written by Fielding Edlow is a journey into not only physical intimacy, but emotional depth that is more than the sum of its parts… ICU is a theatrical whirlwind that deserves an audience.” – On Stage Los Angeles
