An incident of bullying leads to a horrifying consequence in this timely new play that follows the journey of two families: before, in the moments leading up to the event; and after, as they pick up the pieces once the news cameras have gone home. Parenting, bullying, and its fallout are examined in this heart-wrenching new play from the playwright and director that brought you Daniel’s Husband that leaves audiences breathless.
Under the dynamic leadership of founding Artistic Director Joe Brancato and Executive Director Andrew M. Horn, Penguin Rep has grown in 40 years from a summer theater in a converted 1880’s hay barn in Stony Point, NY to become one of the Hudson Valley’s most influential nonprofit cultural institutions. Hailed by The New York Times as “the gutsiest little theatre” and byLohud.com as a theater that “continues to astonish,” Penguin now reaches tens of thousands of theatergoers each year at its home theater upstate, in New York City, and beyond – with plays and productions premiered by Penguin moving to Off Broadway and to stages across the country and around the world.
