DTF Pipeline Series
Dorset Theatre Festival, under the leadership of artistic director Dina Janis and producing director Will Rucker, will present ‘Three Girls Never Learnt the Way Home’ by Matthew Paul Olmos on Tuesday, July 23, for the second in the acclaimed Pipeline Series of three one-night-only presentations of new work. Olmos is a three-time Sundance Institute Fellowship/Residency recipient. ‘Three Girls’ follows three friends, who after being bused into a newly integrated school, find themselves in the center of a mysterious encounter which ignites a panic throughout the area. With elements of magical realism and visceral theatricality, ‘Three Girls’ explores what happens to children caught in the middle of complicated adult fears.
“Matthew is such a terrific storyteller, and the story of ‘Three Girls’ is the kind that draws you in immediately,” said Janis. “We have a beautiful cast lined up, and this play is already attracting attention nationwide.” Director Larissa Lury will be joined by a cast including Andrea Negrette, Heather Velazquez, Toni Lachelle Pollitt and Jennifer Dorr White. ‘Three Girls Never Learnt the Way Home’ will be presented at the Dorset Playhouse on Tuesday, July 23, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at 802-867-2223 or dorsettheatrefestival.org.
