THE REGULARS by Eliza Bent (ALOHA, ALOHA, OR WHEN I WAS QUEEN; THE BEYONCE)
Directed by Kate Eminger (Ars Nova, Actors Theatre of Louisville, SPACE on Ryder Farm)
“Set in 2002 in a magic shop in Boston's Faneuil Hall, Eliza Bent's new play THE REGULARS examines the stories we tell ourselves (and the more complicated realities) about what it has meant to be an "average American" throughout our nation's history, from its founding through today.”
The cast includes Ellie MacPherson (54 Below), Gail Shalan (Bristol Old Vic), and Gus Cuddy (Geva Theatre Center) with returning Pie, Pint, and a Play actors Rachel Griesinger (Naked Angels) and Jessica Giannone (Bristol Old Vic, Williamstown, SPACE on Ryder Farm).
Suggested Donation of $10.
The reading and pie will be located upstairs, so purchase your pint first then head on up!
