1/15 The Haven (NEW WORKS SERIES)
This Tuesday, January 15th, please join us for our reading in our NEW WORKS SERIES: “The Haven” by Richard Etchison.
Once a month, Play Club West is proud to present the reading of a NEW WORK (plays, screenplays, teleplays, one acts, tv pilots), followed by a post-reading talkback.
It’s a crowded, busy day at the airport gate as four people await a flight to Atlanta. The hung-over Paige has just ended a tumultuous weekend at her best friend’s wedding. Next to her is Gunnar, who is traveling to his niece’s baptism. They hit it off immediately, enjoying each other’s charming banter. However, the people next to them seem to be traveling together, despite the fact they sit apart. A curious tension hangs in the air between the married couple who have just dropped their son off at college…
