"...you are a fundamentally evil person..."

CONTENT WARNING: Before listening, be advised that this episode discusses a play that deals with troubling subject matter (primarily sexual abuse and suicide).

The Breakdown is discussing perhaps the most complex and troubling play NYC has seen in years: DOWNSTATE, by Pulizter Prize winning playwright Bruce Norris (CLYBOURNE PARK). Joined by Etai Benson (COMPANY, THE BAND'S VISIT), Matt discusses his own difficult past with abuse, the limitations of empathy and, of course, Matt and Etai's summers at The Manor.
