Midwives – The Two Act Stage Play by Chris Bohjalian

This gripping tale of suspense and riveting courtroom drama will keep audiences on the edge of their seats from start to finish. When a major snowstorm breaks out during a routine home birth, cutting off all communication with the outside world, midwife Sibyl Danforth is forced to make an impossible decision.  

This world premiere play is adapted by the author from his #1 New York Times bestselling novel and Oprah’s Book Club selection, and will be directed by David Saint.


Preview performances begin January 21, 2020 and opening night is January 24 at the George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick, NJ.


The cast will be announced later this autumn, but among the actors who participated in the play’s Manhattan workshop in early September were Lou Diamond Phillips, Ann Dowd, and Kelly AuCoin.
