Lake Luzerne, NY.

By Neill Shanahan
Post-Reading Discussion Moderated By: Rachel Edwards Harvith

In a small Adirondack village, facing explosive commercial development, Preston Taylor, former State Senate Majority Leader, Department Chair at nearby Skidmore College and Head of the Village Zoning Commission, tragically loses his wife in an apparent accidental auto/bicycle collision. When the autopsy reveals a high concentration of opiates, he and his adult daughters are thrown into conflict and guilt as they grapple with what they never suspected.  As the village struggles  with massive cultural disruption, its leading family tries desperately come to grips with their own past and future.

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.
