The Resting Place
Magic TheatreThrough Nov 4th
Magic Theatre opens its 2018-2019 season with Ashlin Halfnight‘s family drama, The Resting Place, at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. First revealed to Magic audiences at Magic’s 2017 Virgin Play Festival reading series, The Resting Place is a provocative and intensely involving look at an American family trying to survive a major crisis.
Through his new work, Halfnight addresses powerful issues such as familial obligation, guilt, complacency and culpability in wrongdoing, and enabling behavior. The Resting Place poses the dilemma of how families can reconcile their love for a family member despite their painful knowledge of a horrifying transgression.
