The Code by Brenda Foley

In The Code, Bella is reminded intimacy is not necessarily synonymous with truth.

Meet your Director:

Lizzy Kimball is very pleased to be directing at her first playwright’s festival, during her first year with The Road. She recently was seen on The Road’s stage as US in the West Coast Premiere of Nicky Silver’s The Lyons. As a writer herself, she is very happy to be helping bring new work to a new audience. Very grateful to all the playwright’s involved for sharing their talent. For more info go to
