A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere!
November 4 - 22, 2015
The Adrienne Theater | 2030 Sansom Street
By Chad Beckim
Directed by Kevin Glaccum
Grace takes a chance on Large. Large takes a chance on Riece. Can these three broken but brave overs hold a family together when all they can do is tear each other apart? Across race and cultural line, the common language is love. Named Outstanding New Play for its workshop at the New York Fringe, Lights Rise on Grace strips bare the issues of incarceration, sexuality and family.
