Funny and harrowing (often at the same time) DRY LAND gives us a timely glimpse of what happens when everyone leaves the locker room and two young female athletes grapple with their friendship and personal issues.
Only 8 Performances over 2 weeks!
Ester is a swimmer trying to stay afloat. Amy is curled up on the locker room floor. Dry Land is a play about abortion, female friendship, resiliency, and what happens in one locker room after everybody’s left.
Set largely in the girls locker room of a Florida high school, this portrait of an unlikely friendship under uncommon pressure is tender, caustic, funny and harrowing, often all at the same time. Cheryl Painter directs this timely production that details the limited options young women face in crisis.
‘Dry Land’ is the first full-length play from American playwright Ruby Rae Spiegel. Spiegel was only 21 when ‘Dry Land’ was shortlisted for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, and its premiere production received a five-star review from the New York Times, calling the play “remarkable… caustic, funny and harrowing.” ‘Dry Land’ has gone on to receive acclaim across the US, UK and Australia.
