Plays in Progress: Still Life

Apr 13 – Apr 13


By Barbara Blumenthal-Ehrlich
Directed by Padraic Lillis

Jackie hasn’t returned home after a series of subway bombings. As her husband and her mother wait for the news they’re afraid to hear, they try to be a family without Jackie.

The performance, which starts at 7:00pm, will be followed by a conversation with the playwright.
