Comedy, 5 minutes

I wrote this one for the 2011 Emerging America Festival, put on by the Huntington Theatre, the American Repertory Theatre, and the Institute for Contemporary Art. Just as in 2010, they asked a bunch of Huntington Playwriting Fellows to write short, site-specific audio plays. (For my play, we were fortunate to have M. Bevin O’Gara direct and a fantastic cast of Robert P. Murphy, Ed Hoopman, and Paul Melendy.)

This script was intended to be listened to on the brick plaza in front of the Boston Center for the Arts.

Two longtime Boston residents engage a newcomer in a struggle of class, status, and clay masonry. You’ll never see bricks the same way again.
