World premiere! A brand new musical journey, Dear Piqua, cultivated from AVLT’s Next Stage Iniative in 2017 based on the life of long time company member, Drew Eberly. Eberly whose acting has been lauded for his “passionate intensity” and ability to jump “between cute and warm and cynical and cruel” returns with his original play. Part album, part memoir, Dear Piqua charmingly blends indie folk songs with stories of Ohio’s great towns and the people who leave them. Directed by Matt Slaybaugh.

Graham will take place Fridays and Saturdays Oct 5th – Oct 20th, 2018, with a special preview performance on Thursday, Oct. 4, at MadLab, 227 N. 3rd St., in Columbus. Admission is $18 for the general public, $15 for students and seniors and $13 for MadLab members. Tickets are available online at www.madlab.net.

In a threadbare and not-so-distant future, 17-year-old Linden is accused of a terrible crime. When Petra, a government agent, arrives to investigate, Linden’s family—mother, father, uncle, aunt—must decide whether to save him at all costs or help bring him to justice. THE WAVE THAT SET THE FIRE explores the responsibility parents bear for the actions of their children and how the choices of previous generations affect those who come after.  

Ellen K. Graham is a Denver native and a graduate of the University of Chicago. She has been a finalist for Clubbed Thumb’s Biennial Commission, the Shakespeare’s Sister Fellowship, and the Global Age Project. She has worked with many theatre companies in the Denver area, including Pandemic Collective, And Toto Too, Athena Project, the Edge, Paragon, and the Denver Center Theatre Company. Her play THE WAVE THAT SET THE FIRE, a finalist for the O’Neill National Playwrights Conference, received its world premiere from Athena Project in 2017. She is the founder of the production company Feral Assembly and a co-founder of Shocking Beyond Belief! Films.
