About Dr. Ride’s American Beach House

Join Ars Nova, “A company known for pop-culture-savvy experimentation, with a hipness that sets it apart” (NY Times) for the world premiere of a commissioned play by Tow Playwright-In-Residence, Liza Birkenmeier.

Ars Nova presents

Dr. Ride's American Beach House



It’s 1983, the evening before Dr. Sally Ride’s historic space flight. Hundreds of miles from the launch, a group of women with passionate opinions and no opportunities sit on a sweltering St. Louis rooftop watching life pass them by. Their uncharted desires bump up against American norms of sex and power in this intimate snapshot of queer anti-heroines.
