Hermitage Fellow Terry Guest, playwright of Urbanite Theatre’s recent acclaimed production of At The Wake of a Dead Drag Queen, returns to Sarasota to share his latest work! This funny, vital, and raucous new work is a “Pageant on White American Memory” and explores several of our country’s most consequential families through a wickedly contemporary lens. Join the Hermitage for a sneak peek at a new play by the playwright whose work has been described as “breathtaking” with “indelible scenes” (Chicago Reader).
Note: Audience members are invited to bring their own chairs for this program. May not be suitable for children.
