A staged reading of a new play by Alex Rubin
Directed by 2016 Directors Project Alumna Ilana Ransom Toeplitz
Featuring Jenn Colella
Tony Award nominee Jenn Colella (Come From Away) leads a reading of this Alex Rubin’s provocative new work. In a quiet New Jersey beach town Kari, Rachel, Janet, and Joy -- the 1988 graduates of Deena Boyd’s Home for Disturbed Young Women -- are about to have a very unusual reunion. Thirty years later, their lives have taken vastly different directions, but one secret still unites them.
