Company One: Dry Land (Ruby Rae Spiegel)
Steven Bogart directs the Boston premier of Spiegel’s play. From C1:
A story about abortion, bad jokes, bathing suits, and friendship, DRY LAND, a New York Times critics’ pick, is a brave portrayal of the contemporary American teenager that epitomizes What’s Next in American theatre.
I’m particularly looking forward to Stephanie Recio’s performance, having seen her last year in C1’s The Chronicles of Kalki.
New Rep Theatre: A Number (Caryl Churchill)
