Who doesn’t want to see a drama about a messed up family to make themselves feel better about their own nearest and dearest, right? Well, you’re in luck because tickets are now on sale for the world premiere of rising playwright Jake Jeppson’s new family drama The Clearing. Directed by Josh Hecht, the limited engagement will play January 14 through February 9.
The cast of The Clearing features Allison Daugherty as Ella Ellis, Brian McManamon as Les Ellis, Gene Gallerano as Peter and Brian P. Murphy as Chris Ellis.
The Clearing is the story of two brothers bound together by a terrible secret they’ve been hiding for 18 years. The Ellis family is in many ways a typical American family. But the love they share is intense, all-consuming, even obliterating. When a handsome stranger inserts himself into this tight-knit circle, mother and sons must discover if they have the courage to shatter the bond that has kept them unmoving for two decades and risk the unknown.
