About Blue Ridge
★★★★ “A devastating examination of how even smart, strong women can be deformed by a society that raises them to please. Marin Ireland is seething & sexy." - Time Out New York
A progressive high-school teacher with a rage problem retaliates against her unscrupulous boss and is sentenced to six months at a church-sponsored halfway house, where she attends to everyone’s recovery but her own. Set in Southern Appalachia, Blue Ridge is a pitch-dark comedy about heartbreak, hell-raising and healing by Abby Rosebrock (Dido of Idaho, Atlantic Launch commissionee), directed by Obie Award winner Taibi Magar (Is God Is, The Great Leap).
“Blue Ridge deals courageously in hard, sad human truths, the kind of metastasized stuff that might take a lifetime to heal. Rosebrock’s unsentimental insight and the ensemble’s raw fearlessness make it sting, and Ireland makes it stick.” - New York Magazine
“A funny & scintillating new play." - The Wrap
