Gray Area at the Barrow Group Theatre


The Barrow Group Theatre Company presents Gray Area, by John Ahlin, directed by Seth Barrish, opening at the Barrow Group Theatre on 18 Feb 2008, following previews from 13 Feb and running through to 16 Mar 2008.

Gray Area: New York's leading drama and social critic decides to call it quits. He spends his final radio broadcast, a bitter farewell, firing salvos at a variety of targets, saving a savage barrage against Civil War re-enactors for last. He discovers he has picked the wrong fight when three hardcore re-enactors take profound offense and stage a 'redress for the ages'. What ensues can only be described as; the Civil War's last battle; a full out black-white, blue-gray, blue-red raging debate by characters who are, ironically, the most colorful because they come from the opposite ends of the spectrum.
