"Deconstruction" tells the story of the purported love affair between the famously beautiful novelist Mary McCarthy and her handsome young lover Paul de Man. Set in 1949, the play depicts de Man in the years before he gained worldwide notoriety as the foremost American promoter of deconstruction and of the ideas of German philosopher Martin Heidegger.
The third character in this intricate tale of divided loyalties is Heidegger’s secret lover and McCarthy’s best friend, Hannah Arendt (Karoline Fischer). Just eighty minutes long, the play is a tale of love, friendship, loss and an examination of the nature of truth.
Placed below are photos of the glamorous threesome who will be played by Fleur Alys Dobbins (McCarthy), Jed Peterson (de Man) and Karoline Fischer (Arendt).
