With Eugene O’Neill’s classic Long Day’s Journey into Night as a backdrop, Thirst is set in the downstairs world of the Tyrone family kitchen in August 1912. Two Irish immigrant servant girls and the chauffeur search for love, success, and a sense of belonging in their new world in this lyrical and poignant play.
Join us for an afternoon with a new play read by some of DC’s most talented performers, followed by a post-show discussion with Artistic Director of Theatre, Rex Daugherty. Chatting with audiences about the new scripts in the Play Reading Series is one of the most direct ways our community informs what shows we choose for full production.
Due to the concerns of COVID and DC protocols, we have put these safety measures in place:
- All artists and patrons are required to show proof of vaccination to attend.
- A copy or picture of your vaccine card can be shown upon arrival.
- Masks are required for the indoor setting.
