Wrong Mountain, a work from David Hirson, the award-winning playwright of La Bête, poses the question, “What if you’ve spent your life climbing the wrong mountain?” This wickedly subversive play focuses on the American definition of success. To win a bet with his ex-wife’s fiancée, tortured poet Henry Dennett enters a playwriting contest. Dennett becomes everything he despises when his play becomes a wild success. A brilliant, darkly comic exploration of the “creative process” and modern culture. Time Out New York describes the play as “unmistakably the work of an extremely bright, literate writer bursting with ideas. Wildly smart…the play grabs you and smacks you about, while providing you with no shortage of laughs. Fantastically sharp, witty and heated dialogue
