Familiar
A.R.T. Institute Season
January 19 - 21, 2018 at 7:30PM

Written by Kirsten Greenidge
Directed by Rebecca Bradshaw
Featuring graduate actors from the A.R.T. Institute Class of 2018


Jill’s entire life revolves around three things: protecting her agoraphobic brother and closest companion Archibald, caring for her grieving and unloving mother May, and running the family clam shack on Martha’s Vineyard. When she hires the effervescent Lane as a cashier, she doesn’t anticipate that the new employee will befriend her reclusive brother and put the siblings’ relationship at risk. Written by Boston-based playwright Kirsten Greenidge (Milk Like Sugar, The Luck of the Irish), directed by Rebecca Bradshaw (Luna Gale, Stoneham Theatre; Bad Jews, Speakeasy Stage Company), and featuring the A.R.T. Institute for Advanced Theater Training Class of 2018, Familiar explores familial ties and the chaos that ensues when one’s world changes as swiftly as the tides.
