In The Common Swallow, a big city businesswoman returns to her childhood home in America's heartland. In her attempts to solve her families issues she discovers that you can never fully come back to the past, no matter where or how simply it may have started. Family values, struggles with growth and facing the ever-changing trials of life all root this Midwestern dramatic comedy that reminds us what is most important.
Provincetown will mark the next step, and first official full production, on a journey that will see The Common Swallow open in a commercial New York City run in 2012. The Common Swallow has previously been developed in the Dorothy Strelsin New American Writers Group at Primary Stages and workshopped as part of the HOWL! Festival at 45 Bleecker. It also received a workshop reading in February of 2011 at Cape Rep Theatre as part of the Winter Series. Producers are aiming for a late Winter/early Spring 2012 Broadway bow at a theatre TBA.
