  3. SWING STATE - STAGED READING | NEW WORKS


This new American play is just off Broadway and onto our stage in a professional stage reading directed by Vito Zingarelli. In ‘Swing State,’ Rebecca Gilman looks for hope to outweigh despair in this contemporary portrait of America’s heartland in a time when it feels like everyone’s way of life is in danger of disappearing.

Recently widowed, Peg tends to the 40 acres of native prairie that rises behind her rural Wisconsin home. Her solitary days are interrupted only by visits from Ryan, a family friend with a checkered past. When her late husband’s footlocker is ransacked in her barn, she places a call to the local authorities—unwittingly setting off a series of events that will forever change their lives. As Peg and Ryan fight to regain each other's trust, they learn how to help one another in a new and meaningful way and how to forge a sense of hope in a time when it feels like everyone’s way of life is in danger of disappearing.
