So the World Woos Its Children Back by Tania Gutsche

Three determined strangers have thoughtfully planned a weekend getaway to be alone with their issues.  Soon erupts an onslaught of surprises, foiling these best-laid plans, and their human abilities to adapt and negotiate are tested.

Meet your Playwright:  

Tania Gutsche has been involved in a number of productions of her plays at Pacific Resident Theatre with the PRT writers group, including pieces in Diner Times, Stuck, both years of the Fall Fruit reading series, and numerous 23 hour events.  Tania has a BA from the University of Arizona in Dramatic Theory, and also publishes art criticism and poetry.  She is thrilled to be invited to this highly anticipated Road Theatre event!
