Written by Ashlin Halfnight; Directed by Jessica Holt. The Resting Place is a provocative and intense look at an American Family in a cloudburst of crisis--filled with raw humor, piercing darkness and fierce love. Ashlin Halfnight (Magic Virgin Play Festival 2017) addresses familial obligation, guilt, our own complacency and culpability in wrongdoing and asks, how do we reconcile our love for someone with the knowledge of their horrifying transgression?
The Magic opens its season with the world premiere of Ashlin Halfnight’s family drama, directed by Jessica Holt. It’s said to be both funny and dark and boasts a cast of such excellent actors as James Carpenter, Wiley Naman Strasser, Martha Brigham, Emilie Talbot and others. The Brooklyn-based playwright is also a screenwriter and writes for the Netflix series “Bloodline.”
