Westport Playhouse -Thousand Pines

10/30/2018 to 11/17/2018

25 Powers Court, Westport, CT Phone: 203-227-4177.

The 2018 season  of the Westport PlayHouse culminates with the world-premiere drama, "Thousand Pines," written by Matthew Greene and directed by Austin Pendleton, playing October 30 – November 17, 2018. The new drama was incubated in early 2017 by Westport Country Playhouse's New Works Initiative. Thanksgiving feels hollow this year to the families of a small suburban town where the memories are still too fresh. Nothing is the same since the day when Thousand Pines Junior High School was on every news channel and in everyone's hearts. This important and uplifting tale of redemption shows that everyone is the same in wanting to feel safe and in wanting to heal.
