October 8 - November 4, 2017

When the Donnellys gather to divide their belongings after the sale of their oceanfront mansion, both an internal and literal storm brew. As this brood of famous, longing-to-be-famous, and mess, of a Caucasian family comes together with their POC personal assistant, Charlotte, some really really really really really complicated and totally unique secrets are revealed over white wine.  

A satirical takedown coupled with moments of disorienting sincerity, TWO MILE HOLLOW explores the age old theater genre of affluent white families retreating to their lake houses for a weekend of secrets and fights with brutality, awe and compassion. Only this time, none of the white characters are played by white actors. TWO MILE HOLLOW was named one of the Top 15 Plays on the 2017 Kilroys List.

TWO MILE HOLLOW is being produced as a simultaneous world premiere by First Floor Theater (Chicago), Mixed Blood Theatre/Theater Mu (Minneapolis), Ferocious Lotus (San Francisco) and Artists At Play (Los Angeles).
