THE MAIN(E) PLAY

Genre: Drama
by Chad Beckim

THE MAIN(E) PLAY explores the colliding worlds of two brothers: Shane, a New York City actor desperate to connect to the sanctity of home, and his younger brother Roy, a single stay-at-home dad and sole caretaker of a dysfunctional seven-year-old. A return to Maine for Thanksgiving forces the brothers to confront the loss of tradition, raising the question: what happens when what was, is no longer?

In addition to Michael Gladis, the production stars Alexander Alioto, Susan Dahl, Curran Connor and Allyson Morgan with sets by Caleb Levengood, lighting by Jason Jeunnette, costumes by Whitney Locher and sound by Daniel Odham.
