The Passage

Written by Donald C. Drake

Directed by Daryl Hoffman

 

The chosen play for a full production from the 2013-14 New Play Project season.
Performance dates are Jun. 20-21, 2014.
Please note that these performances will be held at the Industrial Strength Theater 269 Sunset Park Dr. Herndon, VA.  If you have any questions, please contact Joshua Redford @ president@restonplayers.org.  Please do not contact the RCC box office as they are not handling ticketing for these performances.

The play is set some time in the not-too-distant future, after “the last human right” has become an accepted practice and woven into the social fabric. It covers the four hours preceding the scheduled passage of Angus Dewart, as families and friends gather at the traditional party given to people about to depart this world. The play follows the reactions of the family to Angus’s decisions.
