Please join The Royal Pain Shakespeare Co. for a reading of Patrick Gabridge's moving new play, DRIFT directed by Deb Linehan.

Friday, February 22, 2019 - The Drama League - 32 6th Ave., Manhattan - Doors open at 7 pm, Curtain at 7:30 pm.

DRIFT - In the aftermath of a deadly pesticide drift, two very different families on very different farms struggle to overcome overwhelming loss of life, land, and love. Can they find a way to move forward, or will the force of their grief shatter them completely?  Drift finds dark poetry in how we relate to the land around us and how we grow food in contemporary America.
