Pang! by Dan Froot & CompanyPresented by The Yard co-presented with and at the Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse, in association with Island Grown Initiative and Cronig’s Market.
Pang! is an evening of three original plays about real working class families facing the challenges of contemporary life in America – from chronic hunger to gun violence to fraudulent foreclosure to anti-immigrant bias – with love, humor and intelligence. Staged as if recording a live radio broadcast or podcast, three actors at microphones voice dozens of characters, from 18-months to 77-years old, from an accident-prone toddler to a Burundian refugee speaking in his home language. Pang! aims to raise awareness, decrease stigma, and promote cross-class dialogue around circumstances faced by marginalized communities.
