For only $25/$20 mbrs, you can  An All-Access Pass – which gives you an up close-and-personal seat at the final staged reading of a brand new play on Saturday, May 27 at 8pm. Meet the cast and enjoy a glass of wine after the performance.

The Play Project brings New York and Key West together for a behind the scenes glimpse into how theater is made.

The brainchild of director Murphy Davis and playwright Wendy Hammond, the project brings a seasoned playwright, director and equity actors from New York to collaborate with actors and audiences from Key West.

“Coming Up for Air” is a new script by Cassandra Medley. The story centers on Joyce Mitchell, an African-American elementary school science teacher from a small town in northern Ohio, who suddenly finds herself becoming an environmental activist. Her newfound courage threatens her life-long and trusted relationship with the rest of her family.

The Play Project is made possible by Blake Hunter
