Alley All New Reading: Pilgrims says
As a part of the Alley All New Reading Series, the Alley is proud to present a reading of Claire Kiechel’s sci-fi drama Pilgrims. The play is slated to have its world premiere this summer at the Gift Theatre in Chicago, so the Alley’s reading will give Houston audiences a first look at this striking new play. The reading is Monday, March 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the Hubbard Theatre.

Pilgrims begins on a spacecraft on its way to colonize a newly discovered planet. A soldier and a teenage girl live together in one of the ship’s cabins with only an outdated robot and each other for company. When they are quarantined in their close quarters due to a potential outbreak, they’re forced to explore their own traumatic pasts in a dying society. A sly commentary on the American present set in the future, Pilgrims dramatizes how we never seem to change from the past.

The reading is directed by Alley Resident Assistant Director Brandon Weinbrenner and includes Alley Resident Company members Melissa Pritchett and Jay Sullivan, as well as Houston actor Melissa Molano. Following the reading, there will be a talkback with the playwright.

Kiechel's work is catching the attention of theaters around the country and we look forward to introducing Houston audiences to her voice through the Alley All New Reading Series.

As with all Alley All New offerings, the presentation is free and open to the public.
