For years, Matthew Gasda has staged plays around New York “in anonymity,” as he told The New York Times. Then, in 2021, he premiered Dimes Square—a drama-comedy about six Downtown artists doing drugs and being petty—in a living room. It earned him the kind of buzz that’s exceedingly rare for a young playwright or an Off Off Off Broadway play. Morning Journal, Gasda’s new play, has just premiered at the Brooklyn Center for Theatre Research—a rickety loft in Greenpoint. It’s set in a Manhattan apartment that’s passed between six women over 10 years, and it sees them all falling in and out of love. Described as a “pyrotechnic fugue in dramatic form,” Morning Journal touches tones more melancholy than those in Gasda’s recent comedies. —Jensen Davis
