A New Works Festival Reading
Theatre writer Kait Kerrigan’s Father/Daughter asks how much our relationship with our parents and our children impact our romantic relationships. Two stories told 23 years apart, Baldwin is Miranda's 30-year-old divorced father who is trying to forge a new relationship with a beguiling woman, and Miranda is Baldwin's 30-year-old daughter, who has found herself in her first serious relationship. What baggage do we bring with us from our past and how can we learn from the relationships we choose in order to repair the relationships we inherit?
Father/Daughter stars Madeline Wise and Gabriel Levey, directed by Morgan Green. Wise is co-founder of New Saloon Theater Co. Her regional acting credits include Far Away at Sharon Playhouse (also with Levey and Green), PlayMoney at LaMaMa, and The Bridge of San Luis Rey at Two River Theatre. Levey is the creator of the podcast Help, with Carol A. Jantsen. His regional acting credits include Far Away with Madeline Wise, The PIT'sHow to Help the Self When the Self Needs Help, and An Octoroon at Brooklyn's Theatre for a New Audience.
