“I could only have imagined this happening, if I was lucky, when I’m in my seventies,” playwright Lucy Thurber told The New York Times. Thurber was selected
as the first playwright to receive a retrospective in Rattlestick’s inaugural Theater: Village festival, which will annually put on five plays simultaneously at various venues linked together by a playwright
or theme. Thurber’s The Hill Town Plays follows one woman from her childhood growing up in a poor, abusive home in
a western Massachusetts town to
exploring her sexuality as a teenager to becoming a successful writer as an adult. With the $125 five-play pass, you can
work your way through all of them in
order: Scarcity (Cherry Lane), Ashville (the world premiere at the Cherry Lane), Where We’re Born (Rattlestick), Killers and Other Family (Axis), and Stay (New Ohio).
Mondays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: Sept. 1. Continues through Sept. 28, 2013
