Two Plays by Gruen

At the Medicine Show Theatre Company

   Medicine Show Theatre Company will present two plays by John Jonas Gruen, a longtime resident of Water Mill, on April 9 and 10 at 7:30 p.m. at its theater at 549 West 52nd Street in Manhattan.
    “Ballbreaker” is about an impossibly irritating woman whose sole interest in the man who cares for her seems to be his sexual prowess, according to the company. When he decides to withhold his sexual favors, all hell breaks loose.
    “Henry’s Happiness” centers on two male roommates, both schoolteachers, who may or may not be gay. When one of them responds to a classified ad seeking a male companion, the other goes to pieces and discovers the truth about himself.
    Tickets are $10, $7 for students, and can be reserved by calling 212-262-4216 or sending an e-mail to
