Chosen from the 2018 PlayLab Festival! Funny, heartbreaking, and earth-shattering, Alabaster Begins an 11-Theatre National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere at Florida Rep!
Alabaster is a darkly comic southern drama about love, art, and the power of women. This heart-wrenching story of a reclusive Alabama folk artist won the David Calicchio Emerging American Playwright Prize. After a tornado barrels through town leaving nothing but death and destruction, only June and her pet goat Weezy live to tell the tale. When a prominent photographer visits to take pictures of June’s scars, both are forced to reconcile the pain of loss and recovery. This all-female drama explores the meaning and purpose of art and the struggle of the lost and tortured souls that seek to create it.
Contains strong language, adult situations, & brief nudity.
