By Caroline V. McGraw

Directed by Danya Taymor

 

Featuring Owen Campbell, Quincy Dunn-Baker, Cleo Gray, Elise Kibler, Nate Miller, Kristin Villanueva and Zoe Winters

Brandy is the city’s most sought-after birthday party clown who has never let her drinking, gambling, and bed-hopping interfere with her work—until now. Her teenage boyfriend won’t stop calling, her clients are getting needy…and the monster under her bed is growing restless. Weaving fantasy and clowning with brutal reality, TALL SKINNY CRUEL CRUEL BOYS asks…what is the price of growing up?

Admission is free but seating is limited.

 

With an eye towards production-ready scripts, The Ghostlight Reading Series provides an opportunity for writers, directors and collaborators to share the work with an audience before transitioning into production. By focusing on scripts that that reflect our social, political, historical and cultural diversity, Abingdon aims to become a destination for artists grappling with big questions.

A ghost light is defined as “an electric light that is left energized on the stage of a theater when the theater is unoccupied and would otherwise be completely dark.”  This new series aims to maximize usage of the two theaters onsite at Abingdon, the 98-seat June Havoc and the 56-seat Dorothy Strelsin, and energize the momentum of a new work.
