Totally, one of the best new plays to hit the ground running. Don't be surprised to see this play moving to larger markets. Do take the opportunity to see it while it's "Atlanta's own". The play's ending is a shocker!

Description

A World Premiere by David Mitchell Robinson

Directed by Judith Ivey

Jeff is determined to do right by his daughter on the night of her 23rd birthday. But first he has to figure out where his daughter lives. And find an open pet store. And navigate his Oldsmobile over the Mississippi past the wrecked 35W Bridge. Oh, and stop for a drink. Just one — this time.

A portrait of a flawed man on a collision course with fate one cold Minneapolis winter night, Carapace is the latest winner of the Kendeda Graduate Playwriting Competition, identifying the best new American playwrights and bringing their work to Atlanta.

“It’s rare that I read a script that I simply can’t put down, but that is exactly what happened when I read Carapace,” director Judith Ivey said in a statement. “In addition to being a thrilling ride, it raises beautiful questions about parenting and the connections we make — and fail to make — at the times we need help the most.”
