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.
