The Off-Road series is the Road Theatre Company’s developmental workshop wing, that aims to use the off-night theater space to explore and develop new plays. It is particularly interested in, but by no means limited to, socially challenging and avant-garde plays that need time and space to develop and evolve into full production-ready pieces.
THE OFF-ROAD 2017 SEASON
AT THE ROAD ON MAGNOLIA
There’s no one way to grieve and Mari is determined to carve her own path. After her husband Daniel dies in a domestic terrorist incident, Mari plays cards with Daniel’s ghost, smokes pot, and shocks her fellow support groupies whenever possible. Mari refuses to let go of Daniel but her compartmentalized life starts to fray at the edges. What is the cost of holding on? Of letting go?
