TWO RIVER PLAYERS
Join Two River staff and friends in this community play exploration series!
The Two River Players ring in the new year with a new series of community readings, featuring Two River Theater staff members, plus a few surprise guests! This series travels from Russia at the turn of the 20th century, to Manila, South Carolina, and a fantastical New York City of the future. Join the Two River Players on this journey through classic, award-winning, and thought-provoking plays!
These free play explorations will be conducted live over Zoom, and each part will be followed by a Q&A with the players.
TWO RIVER PLAYERS: Marisol
José Rivera’s Obie-award winning play has been described as “an apocalyptic urban fantasy, which urges society to ‘wake up’ and somehow find a way to recover the long-lost and much-needed compassion for our fellow man.”
TWO RIVER PLAYERS: Wedding Band
Set in South Carolina during the Summer of 1918, Alice Childress’ Wedding Band follows the interracial love story between Julia, a black seamstress, and Herman, a white baker.
TWO RIVER PLAYERS: Dogeaters
Adapted from the 1990 novel of the same name, Jessica Hagedorn’s Dogeaters presents a Philippines that is “sometimes grim and stark, sometimes beautiful and lush, but always volatile.”
