Brutish by Emily Acker

InterAct has made a robust commitment to supporting local playwrights through main stage productions, readings, workshops, and commissions. The InterAct Core Playwrights Program furthers this commitment by offering developmental support to four talented local writers over two years.
The program is a two-year journey designed to bring the Core Playwrights closer to their full potential through one-on-one dramaturgy, monthly developmental readings, and professional support. Each year of the residency culminates in a weekend of public readings.

Join us for the staged reading of BRUTISH! 

In a story about sexual discovery, infidelity, love and family, Emily Acker's new dark comedy BRUTISH, bluntly reimagines a society ruled by the Matriarchy and forces a new perspective on the classic American family drama.
