These porn stars have fame, money, and sex, but it’s not enough. They want more. But what else is there? And what will they do to get it? Thirst is a play about extreme desire and the danger of being gendered. -Featuring - Caroline Brown, Ryan Fields, Emily Feliciano, Julian Garcia, Hisam Goueli, and Grace Carmack Specialty movement: Eleanor Withrow Stage directions: Caitlin Coey Production coordinator: Kiki Abba -Producer Bio - Thirst is Parley’s seventh world premiere staged reading since 2014. Parley is a weekly playwrights' group as well as a producing entity. The term "parley" derives from the French verb "parler": to speak. Historically, a parley was a meeting between adversaries in order to negotiate an end to battle. To signal a willingness to talk peaceably, armies would run up a white flag. Writing is a solitary act. It's easy for playwrights who feel isolated to become defensive. Our group seeks to cure that condition. By committing to a process of reading, discussing, and producing one another's work, we surrender the lone struggle and move creatively forward together.
