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 Lab Rats, Blood on the Snow, Flight, Distant Neighbors, Fire on Earth, and Blinders and have been staged by theatres across the country. Recent commissions include plays and musicals for In Good Company, The Bostonian Society, Central Square Theatre, and Tumblehome Learning. His short plays are published by Playscripts, Brooklyn Publishers, Heuer, Smith & Kraus, and YouthPlays and have received more than 1,000 productions from theatres and schools around the world. He’s also the author of three novels, Steering to Freedom, Tornado Siren, and Moving (a life in boxes). His work for radio 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 Bare Bones Theatre company in New York, the publication Market InSight… for Playwrights, and the on-line Playwrights’ Submission Binge. He’s also a member of the Dramatists Guild, StageSource, and a board member of the Theatre Community Benevolent Fund. He is the co-founder and current coordinator of the New England New Play Alliance. In his spare time, he likes to farm and fix up old houses.

(As of July 2016)

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.
