TWO MILE HOLLOW


by LEAH NANAKO WINKLER
directed by RANDY REYES

February 16 - March 4, 2018

 

A CO-PRODUCTION WITH MIXED BLOOD THEATRE

A parody coupled with moments of disorienting sincerity, Two Mile Hollow explores the dysfunctional family with brutality, awe and compassion. When the Donnellys gather for a weekend in the country to hash out belongings from their recently sold estate, an emotional storm breaks inside while a literal storm brews outside. As this family of famous, longing-to-be-famous, and kind-of-a-mess-but-totally-Caucasian characters come together with their personal assistant, Charlotte, some really really complicated and totally unique secrets are revealed (over white wine).

TICKET PRICING

We strive to voice the stories of the Asian American community, and in order to bring performances to those communities whose stories they tell, we are committed to make them as accessible as possible. PAY AS YOU ARE pricing asks those who routinely pay $35 for theater tickets to choose to pay that amount; it is the actual fair market value of the ticket. If an audience member needs to pay less, they can choose to pay less – as little as $5 per ticket.

BECOME A PLAYMAKER

Donate $20 or more when you purchase a ticket and become a playmaker. Ticket sales only cover a third of actual production costs. Playmakers help make strong performances possible by helping to cover the real cost of a play.
