About after all the terrible things I do

What makes ordinary people do terrible things? Daniel – a young, gay aspiring writer – seeks a fresh start and a new job at the local bookstore he loved as a child.  When he meets Linda, the Filipina bookstore owner, they discover a connection that goes deeper than a love of literature. Artistic Director Peter DuBois directs the New England premiere of A. Rey Pamatmat’s gripping and intimate new play about forgiveness and second chances.

Approximate run time: 1 hour and 45 minutes with no intermission


"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
