The Gray Sisters
by Craig Wright
April 30, 2010 through May 23, 2010

Third Rail has always been a big fan of Craig Wright, our most frequently produced playwright. Now he's a fan of us! After seeing our award-winning production of his play Grace, he 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.

Join us as we introduce a new work to the canon of American Drama.
