Flight

by Patrick Gabridge • Directed by Jessica Bauman

Sarah escapes from her life by spending most of her time at the airport, pretending to be someone else but never going anywhere. After a janitor, Carlos, attempts to befriend her, she discovers she isn’t nearly as invisible as she’d hoped. Flight gives us a drama about people lost in a place that’s not really anywhere, trying to salvage lives torn apart by loss. 

Featuring David Anzuelo*, Cassie Beck*, Patrick Curran, and Philana Mia*.

Patrick Gabridge's Drift (2016) and Flight (2012) have been part of the Huntington's Summer Workshops. Mr. Gabridge's full-length plays include Mox Nox, Lab Rats, Blood on the Snow, Chore Monkeys, Distant Neighbors, Fire on Earth, and Blinders and have been staged by theatres across the country. He was the artist-in-residence at Mt. Auburn Cemetery for 2018-19, where he developed and produced two series of site-specific plays, The America Plays and The Nature Plays, as well as Moonlight Abolitionists (a site-specific play designed to be read under the full moon). His short plays are published by Playscripts, Brooklyn Publishers, Heuer, Smith & Kraus, StageRights, and YouthPlays and have received more than 1,000 productions from theatres and schools around the world. He’s also the author of four novels, and his work for radio/audio has been broadcast and produced by NPR, Shoestring Radio Theatre, Playing on Air, and Icebox Radio Theatre. Mr. Gabridge has a habit of starting things: he helped start Boston’s Rhombus Playwrights writers’ group, the Chameleon Stage theatre company in Denver, the publication Market InSight… for Playwrights, the on-line Playwrights’ Submission Binge, and the New England New Play Alliance. He’s currently the Eastern New England Regional Rep for the Dramatists Guild. He is the producing artistic director of Plays in Place, a company focused on creating new site-specific plays in partnership with cultural institutions and historic sites. In his spare time, he likes to farm and fix up old houses.

 

(As of September 2020)

In 2012, the Huntington launched the Summer Workshop, a two-week new work retreat culminating in public readings of the plays in development. The Workshop is modeled after the Sundance Theatre Lab and is an extension of the Huntington’s Playwriting Fellows program and Breaking Ground Reading Series. Huntington Director of New Work Lisa Timmel and Huntington dramaturg Charles Haugland support the writers during the intensive, artist-driven development process, and the festival is produced by Huntington Associate Producer M. Bevin O’Gara.
