FAR FROM THE TREES by Christina Gorman presented by The Quick and Dirties: PUMP UP THE PLAY!
Leighton's simple life is upended when he learns his beloved forest of petrified trees, which he has spent years painstakingly unearthing, is priceless. His nephew, a prodigy in particle physics, has just been expelled for "academic sabotage" and the university is demanding its six-digit scholarship money back. Leighton can save his family from bottomless debt if only he will sell. Why then can't he let go?
The Quick and Dirties is an annual play series presented by |the claque| that gives six plays an opportunity to get pumped up! Each play is past the point of a developmental reading but not yet ready for a full production; a ten-day rehearsal intensive, design elements, a full creative team and two public showings at The Tank will pump up each play's potential. The QuaDs 2013 will take place throughout April and May and feature Rob Askins, Christina Gorman, Willie Orbison, Frank Paiva, Jen Silverman and Crystal Skillman.
