HUDSON STAGE PRESENTS a Staged Reading on FRIDAY, MAY 31st at 7:30pm of a new play,  TAR BEACH, by Tammy Ryan, directed by Ellie Heyman.

It is July 1977. Son of Sam is on the loose and New York City is in the midst of a brutal heat wave. Sixteen year old Mary Claire and her best friend Mary Francis start that day sunning themselves on the roof of an Ozone Park row house. Younger sister Reenie is searching for her lost Greek Mythology class project, while their parents are consumed by the battles of their troubled marriage. An overstressed electrical grid leads to a city-wide blackout and a sudden loss of innocence.

Tammy Ryan (playwright)  is a resident playwright of New Dramatists class of 2025. Her plays have been performed across the United States and internationally, including The Music Lesson (Florida Stage/Carbonell Award/AATE Distinguished New Play Award.)

Ellie Heyman (Director) is the Director in Residence at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater and her work there includes Erin Markey’s Boner Killer, Becca Blackwell’s They, Themself and Schmerm. Upcoming projects include The Tattooed Lady by Max Vernon & Erin Courtney and Dreamboy,a new music-fiction podcast.

All events $10 general admission, no reservations necessary. Q&A immediately following the reading.
