The resting place

The resting PLace

Written by Ashlin Halfnight
Directed by Jessica Holt



World premiere

OCTOBER10 -NOVEMBER 4, 2018


The Resting Place is a provocative and intense look at an American Family in a cloudburst of crisis—filled with raw humor, piercing darkness and fierce love. Ashlin Halfnight (Magic Virgin Play Festival 2017) addresses familial obligation, guilt, our own complacency and culpability in wrongdoing and asks, how do we reconcile our love for someone with the knowledge of their horrifying transgression?
