Elise's old man is dead, the son-of-a-bitch. Nate and Hazel have joined her in the middle of nowhere to dance, drink, and self-destruct, as together they navigate love and mourning. Come out, crack open a Budweiser and knock one back, or two, or ten, for the people who have stepped on you. Because a good wake is basically a party...right?
Spearheaded by an all-female production team, Throughoutiveness is a play about grief and moving on, with script and music by Emily Krause and directed by Florence Le Bas. Throughoutiveness aims to show an honest and unfiltered portrayal of a young woman's journey through grief -one in which her anger is not policed, and her age is not grounds for dismissal. This will be the first New York production of Throughoutiveness, following a workshop reading with the Playwriting Collective in 2016.
The cast will feature Ruby Hurlock (Craters, Corkscrew Festival, Midsummer Nights Dream & Macbeth, Barefoot Shakespeare Festival), Brian Ott* (Coriolanus, Gallery Players, A New Brain, Iron Crow Theatre), and Audrey Morton (Young Pilgrims, The RAVE Theatre Festival, The Lion in Winter, The Barn Theatre), scenic design by Rachel Zimmerman, and lighting design by Annie Garrett-Larsen. The production stage manager will be Sydnee Drake Peterson. *Appearing courtesy of the Actors' Equity Association.
