Plank is a funny, thoughtful, irreverent, sometimes sad story about a woman who is happy and content, adrift on a plank of wood in the middle of the ocean. Then she’s “rescued.” Plank addresses some of the most important issues of our time including climate change, refugees, the TSA, Sponge Bob, and how certain political parties resemble swarms of killer bees. Plank is for anyone 14 and older who seeks intelligent, compelling stories that push the boundaries of theater.

Opening Night is Saturday, August 26. (Friday, August 25 is a preview.) 

Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes, no intermission.

Alley Cat Theater is the recipient of a LiveArtsBoston (LAB) Grant from The Boston Foundation in support of new, daring theater.
