EDUCATING ASHER – July 29 to August 14
A WORLD PREMIERE PLAY WRITTEN BY & STARRING LOCAL ARTIST EYTAN DERAY!
Directed by Seth Trucks
Hiding in the kitchen at a reception for a funeral, Asher is not quite sure how to process his grief over the loss of his former middle school teacher, Elliott Weiss, who he hasn’t spoken to or seen in 5 years. His boyfriend Mark tries to encourage him to talk to Mr. Weiss’s widower, Nick, but to no avail. Soon enough, Asher is forced to confront his grief when Elliott’s ghost appears in the kitchen with him. It’s only now that Elliott is gone that Asher can finally say everything he ever wanted to the teacher that changed his life. “Educating Asher” is a meaningful story about loss, the friendships that shape us, and most importantly, love.
