Tension resonates in Arc Stages’ The Sound Inside.

Pleasantville, N.Y. — Pleasantville theater company Arc Stages presents The Sound Inside by Adam Rapp for their professional company, the Next Stage. The Next Stage focuses on showcasing contemporary, innovative work by a wide variety of exciting and talented writers. It is the third wing of a company that also includes a thriving Educational Stage and Community Stage.

The Sound Inside is directed by Ann-Ngaire Martin. Starring Joan Hess* & Henry Nicholas Temple*. 

A brilliant Ivy League writing professor. A talented yet mysterious student. An unthinkable favor. Everyone has a story—the question is how it ends. “It’s about writers: the kind of people who in weaving stories are often in danger of unraveling themselves.” – The New York Times. 

“The story is fascinating because it looks at why writers are compelled to write,” says director Ann-Ngaire Martin. “And how different people muster courage and hope under impossible circumstances.” Arc Stages’ intimate space is the perfect venue for this gripping and provocative drama. 

Joan Hess will return to Arc Stages as the brilliant Ivy League professor, Bella Baird. Hess starred in The Next Stage production of Every Brilliant Thing in 2018 and The Goat or, Who Is Sylvia? last season. Henry Nicolas Temple makes his Arc Stages debut as Christopher Dunn. Temple’s most recent work includes Jake in the feature film Our Future’s Past.

Performances are February 2-17 at Arc Stages, located at 147 Wheeler Avenue in Pleasantville, NY.

Tickets are $38 for adults, $30 for students, $28 for seniors. To purchase tickets, please visit or call 914-747-6206.
