Oh, the things we do in the name of love! 3GT Resident Playwright Suze Allen brings her well-honed sense of irony and wise perspective on relationships to three short plays that tell three very different love stories. A brother and sister confront their long-buried secrets in THE WAY AROUND. A mother does what she must to save her child in BLOODLINE. A couple ponders their mutual decay in DRY ROT. It’s an hour of moving, thought-provoking theater that shows why Allen is renowned as a master of the short play form.
