Elections, voting, polling, it’s all happening around us in 2024. The Polling Place plays offer a unique, thought provoking exploration of civic engagement, democracy and the human experience.


The typical location for voting, a community center, serves as more than the backdrop-it becomes the canvas for exploring the human connections, ethical dilemmas and the resilience of democracy itself.

Performances:

October 17-19, 2024

Within the rustic walls of a secluded retreat, characters grapple with their pasts, secrets and unexpected encounters. The cabin transforms into a character itself, whispering stories by the fireside.
