Blue Reunion

A staged Reading
with The Playwrights Workshop


by Ned Dougherty
























Come join the The Playwrights Workshop's staged reading of Blue Reunion by Ned Dougherty - a play about four former high school football players who return to their hometown. 

On a cold December night in a rusted-over Pennsylvania nowhere town, the Class of 2003 football team reunites at their high school to watch the next generation win the state championship. Partying behind the bleachers, begging the glory days to return, the old players are haunted by their abusive coach who seemed to predict their dead-end futures. None of them got over how close they came to becoming champions back then, and tonight they’ll do whatever it takes to win for once in their lives.

Seven Feet Under

A collection of
original short playS

all set in a cemetery

A Small Town Production


Step into the liminal space where past and present collide, where the departed and the living find themselves in an embrace with their deepest desires, fears, and quests for redemption. Seven Feet Under dares to freeze time and space for a rendezvous between the here and the hereafter.


In each play, we explore the chance meetings that infuse our lives with significance, and the mediums through which we bridge the realms of the living and the beyond. Come, be a part of this convergence, where the departed and the living discover that, in this place of transition, not all that's gone truly rests, and neither does that which is left behind.

Seven Feet Under is a collection of seven short plays written by Small Town Productions and other local playwrights. They would love for you to stay afterwards and join us for a small reception at the Alchemical Studio café.

Please note that Seven Feet Under contains smoking and fog.
Content features wrestling and knife-work, depictions of death, sexual activity, and drug use, as well as descriptions of police brutality, grief and bullying.
