8 Stops - by Deb Margolin
OBIE Award winner Deb Margolin's thought-provoking new solo work is a comedy concerning the grief of endless compassion. It's about death, breasts, the private lives of animals, the suburbs, the spiritual exurbs, illness, desire, and a subway ride with a motherless child who Deb realizes she has only 8 stops to raise. Isn't that all the time we ever really have…8 Stops? Developed as part of a writing residency with celebrated poet and performance artist Dael Orlandersmith at the Kimmel Center, this rousing world-premiere work will leave you with classical questions about the nature of compassion and the limits, and the limitlessness, of human endurance.
The Kimmel Center's Theater Residency program is made possible by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. We would also like to thank The Hearst Foundation and Linda & David Glickstein for their generous contributions.
THIS EVENT TAKES PLACE AT: SEI Innovation Studio, Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, 300 S Broad St, Philadelphia, PA 19102
