OU Alumni Laura Jacqmin’s new play Residence is apart of 40th annual Humana Fest season. The festival runs March 2nd-April 10th in Louisville, Kentucky and features plays by such as playwrights as Stephen Dietz and Sarah Ruhl.
Here is a synopsis of Residence:
New mom Maggie returns to her medical sales job, checking into an extended-stay hotel in Arizona as she pursues the commission that will get her out of debt and back on track. When she befriends two hotel employees intent on making her visit a five-star experience, they discover that their lives are all on similarly shaky ground. A funny and sharply-observed play about hanging on when you’re at the end of your rope, and the times when letting go might be the most responsible thing to do.
Here is a nifty video about Laura’s new play! Congrats Laura!! Y’all check check it out if you’re in the area!
