The lives of very different farming families intertwine after a deadly pesticide accident. As two wives find themselves caught between holding on to what was lost and moving forward, Drift finds dark poetry in how we relate to the land around us and how we grow food in contemporary America.

When “around-the-way-girl” Lala meets brainy and affluent Dani, an instant flirtation grows into an inseparable season of firsts. Their playful debates about everything from visual art to old school music seem romantic. So why haven’t they started K-I-S-S-I-N-G?

K-I-S-S-I-N-G was commissioned by the Clark University Theatre Department.


The Huntington Theatre Company’s annual Summer Workshop will start rehearsals on July 12 and conclude in public readings of three new plays on July 23 and 24, 2016. The workshop allows selected members of the Huntington Playwriting Fellows program two weeks to focus on developing new plays. The workshop and public readings will take place in the South End at the Huntington’s Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts, 527 Tremont Street, Boston.

Modeled after the Sundance Theatre Lab, the Summer Workshop is an extension of the Huntington’s Playwriting Fellows program and Breaking Ground Festival. Huntington staff members Lisa Timmel (Director of New Work) and Charles Haugland (Artistic Programs & Dramaturgy) support the writers in development. The festival is produced by Stephanie LeBolt, Daniel Morris, and Tonasia Jones.
