Annie and Nate have a baby who won't sleep. Claire and Luke are losing sleep over the decision to get married and start a family. In adjacent Brooklyn Heights apartments, Daniel Goldfarb's newest and wittiest look at love, sex, commitment and parenthood unfolds and no one will rest until the truth between each of these couples is spoken.
The creative team for CRADLE AND ALL includes: Neil Patel (scenic design), Mattie Ullrich (costume design), Ken Billington (lighting design), and Jill BC DuBoff (sound design).
