The Fishtank presents DRY LAND at STAGE TWO at MTH Theatre on the 3rd Floor of Crown Center

Swimming in school, drowning in life 


Set in a girl’s locker room of a Florida high school, DRY LAND wrestles with the complexities of friendship and the fears of the future that grip young women arriving at the threshold of adulthood. 

 

21-year-old playwright Ruby Rae Spiegel — a finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn prize — writes a brazen, no-holds-barred play about that time in your life when no one else can possibly understand what you’re going through. 

DRY LAND, a New York Times critics’ pick, is a brave portrayal of the contemporary American teenager that epitomizes What’s Next in American theatre.


“Tender, caustic, funny and harrowing, often all at the same time.” — New York Times


“Watching Ruby Rae Spiegel’s ruthlessly honest DRY LAND is a simple, fierce play to put a young woman’s capacity for pain center stage — and the choice feels thrilling, even political.” — Time Out New York 


From Director Heidi Van:

DRY LAND is the result of conversations we are refusing to have, unable to have, and because of this - we are failing  women on a global scale.  Spiegel fearlessly presents one of the lesser told, but not lesser known, experiences of being a young woman. This story of teenage girls entering adulthood is devastating, riveting, and full of heart. I had to produce this play - as a woman, and a mother. This play is for our daughters. 


DRY LAND features Emily Sukolics, Erdin Schultz-

Bever, Emily Ho, Cooper Slater and Joseph Fournier.
