After seeing Third Rail’s award-winning production of his play Grace, Craig Wright offered to pen a script specifically for Third Rail’s luminous actresses. In The Gray Sisters, four sisters unravel their family’s history, and in the process grapple with questions of love, loyalty, faith, and fate.


“For all the power in what writers, actors and designers show us and tell us, the real magic often is in what they invite, or at times compel, us to see for ourselves…Seldom will you find such open space used as boldly – or as extensively – as in The Gray Sisters, the gripping drama by Craig Wright given its world premiere Friday by Third Rail Repertory Theatre…Yet its austerity is remarkably potent, creating a synergy between the stark yet vivid performances we see and all that we’re left to fill in around them.” –The Oregonian

“The brutal honesty with which Third Rail’s performers handle their material makes for some truly rattling, gut-punching scenes.” –Portland Mercury
