Dorset Playhouse to Present ‘Rest’
On Tuesday August 20, Dorset Theatre Festival will present the final installment of Dorset’s New Play Reading Series. ‘Rest,’ by Samuel D. Hunter, winner of the 2013 Drama Desk Special Award for Playwriting and the Lucille Lortel award for Best New Play, is directed by Davis McCallum, whose work on Hunter’s play ‘A Bright New Boise’ earned him a Drama Desk Nomination.
Featuring a stellar cast, the play tells the story of residents and employees of a rest home in Idaho on the eve of the facility’s closing, snowed in and facing tragedy.
The New Play Series reading of ‘Rest’ is on Tuesday, August 20 at 7, at the Dorset Playhouse, 104 Cheney Road, in Dorset. For tickets call the box office at 802-867-2223 or online at dorsettheatrefestival.org.
