Tickets are now on sale for the world premiere of The America Plays, the second series of site-specific short plays by Mount Auburn Cemetery’s Artist-in-Residence, Patrick Gabridge and directed by Courtney O’Connor. The America Plays will run from September 12-22, 2019, for 12 performances at Mount Auburn Cemetery, 580 Mt. Auburn Street, Cambridge, MA.
These five plays present a journey through the American experience, highlighting the drama and philosophies of men and women, from artists to immigrants, who struggled to find their place in this nation as the American identity was being formed.
Audiences will experience the performances outdoors, at various spots across the grounds. Seating is provided and free on-site parking is available. The entire performance will run for approximately 90 minutes and will include walking within the Cemetery on paved and unpaved surfaces and steep inclines; total walking distance approx. 2 miles. Shows will run rain or shine. After each performance is an optional moderated discussion with the playwright, director, actors or an expert on a person or topic explored in the plays.
