Sorry this event has already happened.

Amy and Ester, two girls on a Florida high school swim team, form an unlikely friendship as one of them faces the horrible fact of a pregnancy. Harrowing, joyous, witty, intimate, and heartbreaking all at once: this is a play about abortion, female friendship, and resiliency, and what happens in one high school locker room after everyone’s left.

DRY LAND understands that friendships among adolescents in crisis, especially among those coming to the end of a chapter in their lives, can be as intense and ephemeral as summer storms.” — NY Times.
