The Suburbs - Produced by Thrown Stone

Thrown Stone has commissioned three new plays by Tony Meneses, Phanésia Pharel, and Catherine Yu. These short, site-specific works will be performed in sequence at Keeler Tavern Museum and History Center, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, and West Lane Inn as a single “roving production” (where the audience follows the action from location to location).
