Genre: Drama
By Eugene O'Neill, Directed by Clayton Guiltner


Three people, one raft, and the merciless ocean on all sides.

Grex Group Theatre produces Eugene O’Neill’s rarely done, 100 year old, one-act play, Thirst, just blocks from where Mr. O’Neill was born in New York City. Three passengers from a sunken ocean liner are stranded on a life raft, afloat in the crisp open waters, among the circling sharks as the sun relentlessly beats down. These people are very different, and they are the same. They want to survive. But at what cost? Thirst, Eugene O’Neill’s harrowing play, is a not-to-be-missed drama that will force you to think about human nature and the passion we all have inside.

Performances are 3pm and 7pm, July 27-28 at Theatre 54 in New York City.

Clayton Guilter, Artistic Director of Grex Group Theatre (Director: Ibsen’s Women, Pretentious Young Women)directs the New York company of actors, David Gazzo as “The Gentleman”, Jackie Jacobi as “The Dancer”, and Quatis Tarkington as “The Sailor”. The creative team also includes: Assistant Director: Emily Jackson, Scenic Designer: Tyler M. Perry, Costume Designer: Erin Guiltner, Lighting Designer: Nick Flinn, Dramaturge: Casey Wright.

What We Do

The Grex Group strives to contribute to the art of live theatre through quality productions, giving opportunities to the many highly trained and skilled emerging and established theatre artists in New York City and beyond. We produce plays that aim to both entertain and enrich our audiences through the telling of vibrant stories involving memorable characters. 

Each project serves as a research experiment for our directors, actors, and designers, and an opportunity for us, as theatre practitioners, to practice our craft with freedom and creativity. Whether it's a simple staged reading or a complete staged production, our projects contribute not only to the growth of those involved at Grex, but also to those who attend our shows, classes, workshops, or read about our projects in theatre blogs, journals, and magazines.
