a romantic comedy in two acts
3 f / 3 m / 1 ANY

Judith and Eileen met and eagerly fell in love- first with a band called Phish, and then with each other. But that was thirty years ago, before their lives took notably divergent paths.

An Instagram post from a stranger leads the two of them crashing back into each other, along with four young wayward souls who passionately want to be passionate about something. Over the course of one curious night at a remote Vermont farmhouse, they’ll each explore the nature of devotion- to music, to literature, to other people- and learn the art of “including your own hey.”

“A tour de force... It’s hard to overstate just how well this whole piece comes together. Topher Payne has written a quintessentially American play.”


“Music’s power to be exquisitely personal even as it can be deeply communal is on fine display as the comedy’s Phish phanatics and their loved ones revisit their bonds and forge new ones… There’s so much funny, wounded, sexually adventurous, winking, and sincere action...YOU ENJOY MYSELF had us at ‘hey.’”

-Lisa Kennedy, THE DENVER POST

“A stunning achievement that is able to speak to our current moment in a way rarely captured onstage... We are witnessing the birth of a new American classic.”
