Based on interviews with the residents of Reading, Pennsylvania, this Pulitzer Prize winning drama follows a group of close friends struggle to stay connected when their factory is at risk of collapse. In a neighborhood bar, each of them reaches for their piece of the American dream. Can their friendships survive this test? A moving drama about trust and doubt, longtime bonds and short-term possibilities.
The Script Club is like a book club for plays. We’re diving into important conversations sparked by five bold and engaging plays that speak to our current moment. You'll read the play on your own, and then join KTC staff and special guest artists on Zoom for a one hour discussion of the play and its place in the world. Just to be clear, there is no performance - online or in person - of these plays. Though if you want to act them out at home in your pandemic-safe pod , we full support that! Each session will be led by national theatre artists who have an intimate relationship to each play.
