Primary by Gracie Gardner
IN RESIDENCE: March 29-April 25, 2016
It's 1999. In suburban Connecticut, 9-year-old Sophie is certain she's the missing Sailor Scout, and she's determined to fight the forces of evil. The allure of local politics has brainwashed her underpaid and overworked mother, Laura, into a misguided campaign for State Representative. During the course of a brutal primary election, Sophie must bring her back from the dark side with whatever it takes to restore Laura to her original self.

PLEASE DONATE TO IRT THEATER
IRT Theater is a grassroots laboratory for independent theater and performance in New York City, providing space and support to a new generation of artists. Tucked away in the old Archive Building in Greenwich Village, IRTs mission is to build a community of emerging and established artists by creating a home for the development and presentation of new work. Some of the artists we have supported include Young Jean Lee, Reggie Watts and Mike Daisey.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Office of Council Member Corey Johnson and The Nancy Quinn Fund, a project of ART-NY.
