Staged reading of new play by Kelly Doyle (Blue, Dirt, Agnes the Giant), directed by Steph Scribner.  When Aurora returns home after spending nearly two years in prison, she finds  her brother Milo’s hoarder girlfriend has moved into the house and filled it  with mountains of well-organized garbage. On the other side of town, Milo has a  violent altercation with a rescue worker while he singlehandedly attempts to  protect the CSA produce from a hailstorm. When they finally meet, dark secrets  from childhood are revealed and resolved as they attempt to reconcile after  years of estrangement and misunderstanding. Alternatively disturbing and drily  funny, “Aurora Borealis” explores how we escape the traps in life that we set  for ourselves and become lost in.”

Estimated run time: 1.5 hours.
