Larimore, a master at crafting funny, yet slightly devastating plays returns to present a staged reading of his new play “Upstate.” Seeking fulfillment after a move to upstate New York, Nathaniel and his husband Myles decide to adopt an infant daughter. The play opens on the day the couple has returned her to the adoption agency.

Produced in the U.S. and internationally, Drew Larimore is originally from the South with a focus on crafting strong, fallible, and complex female protagonists in seemingly unreal circumstances. His work has been highlighted in The New YorkerThe New York TimesTheatriusThis Week in New YorkTheatreMania, Australian Stage, Aussie Theatre, and Theatre in the Now.
