The Crux Family:  33 Years of Life and Death in a Dysfunctional Household

By Network Playwright, James Bruce Smith

Post-Reading Moderator: Jess Hutchinson

Based on a true story: in the beginning, there was a successful lawyer with a wife and 5 sons.  Over the years, five die from their own incompetence or criminality, leaving two psychologically scarred brothers.

About the First Draft Series

The First Draft Series is an exclusive series of Tuesday-night play readings for and by Network playwrights. These are private, salon-style readings in which playwrights perform the roles and then discuss the plays in a format similar to that used in the Saturday Series. The discussions are moderated by a Resident Playwright or member of the artistic staff.
