The design and building of Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House and Philip Johnson's Glass House is the backdrop for this penetrating drama that depicts an epic conflict between artist and patron. The Glass House explores classic themes of ambition, love and betrayal

The Glass House had a developmental production in New York City in the spring of 2010. Here is what the critics said,

“Ambitious new play-Harris Yulin brings an excellently calibrated mix of egoism and humanity to van der Rohe.” TheaterMania May 17,2010

“An absorbing drama” Curtain Up May 2010

“The Glass House - a new, immensely satisfying play with smart writing, intelligent direction and four riveting performances” Off Broadway Oscar E Moore May 2010.
