MORE & EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS
A Trilogy of new plays by Amelia French
SEPTEMBER 6th-9th, 2018 | THE GALLERY @ ACCESS THEATER
A young person brings a tour group to the house where they grew up; generations of women can't agree on basic metaphysics; a boy invites a mother-shaped demon inside. A new kind of American cycle emerges from the mind of Amelia French-- cats banter with ghosts, perceptions compete viciously, and the weary bones of family drama dance anew.
