The Humanities Forum explores the context and significance of the play with a leading expert. Past forums have featured historians Doris Kearns Goodwin (Team of Rivals) and Beverly Morgan-Welch (Museum of African-American History), playwrights Paula Vogel and Lydia R. Diamond, Boston Globe columnists, and accomplished scholars. The Humanities Forum is presented following select Sunday matinee performances. Admission to the event is free with the purchase of a ticket to any performance of after all the terrible things I do.
About after all the terrible things I do
An ordinary job interview at a local bookstore becomes much more as store-owner Linda and aspiring writer Daniel realize that their connections go far deeper than a shared love of literature. Together they will have have to face the trauma of their past — but can they find forgiveness? Artistic Director Peter DuBois directs this deeply felt and intimate new play about bullying and second chances.
"I fell in love with this play when I read it for both the sensitivity of Rey Pamatmat's voice and the way he engages in a major social conversation with great warmth, sharp humor, and an incisive point of view. The story makes my heart race, and I think our audiences will love it."— Peter DuBois
"Past Huntington seasons have brought to life such emotional, intelligent, and even dangerous plays, and I am thrilled to have after all the terrible things I do in such skilled hands."— A. Rey Pamatmat
