“All plays are about love and all plays are about death. That’s what we write about. Anything else is subsidiary.”—Deb Margolin
Don’t miss the West Coast premiere of 8 Stops, Obie Award winner Deb Margolin’s thought-provoking and comedic new solo work about death, the private lives of animals, the suburbs, the spiritual exurbs, illness, desire, and a subway ride with a motherless child whom Deb realizes she has only eight stops to raise!
Deb Margolin, author of plays including Imagining Madoff, Turquoise, and Bringing the Fishermen Home, is a nationally celebrated playwright, actor, and founding member of the lesbian feminist political theatre troupe Split Britches. 8 Stops, a comedy concerning the grief of endless compassion, is the brilliant latest of her ten solo shows. She is currently a professor of theatre studies at Yale University. (Twitter, Wikipedia, Yale faculty profile)
