If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet
Nick Payne's black comedy about an ordinary family falling apart opened at the Roundabout Theatre in New York in September 2012, directed by Michael Longhurst. The play stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Gomez, Annie Funke and Brian O'Byrne and marked Michael, Nick and Jake's American theatre débuts.
Surviving school as a fat kid is tough enough. When your mum’s a teacher, it’s hell. What’s more, Anna’s dad is obsessed with saving the world and her maverick uncle Terry is dossing on the couch.
When Anna hits back at the bullies, she suspended from school and stuck at home with hapless Terry trying to save her. But Terry needs saving himself and, as the bond between the two deepens, Anna is swept up in a friendship she can’t live without.

amusing and affecting... an ensemble piece in which everybody impresses. It’s a hell of a calling card for its writerDominic Maxwell
