WHAT'S THE STORY?

In TWO MILE HOLLOW, we meet the Donnellys, a famous, dysfunctional, Caucasian family who are so obsessed with their own privilege that they don’t know what to make of their son’s ethnically ambiguous assistant who comes to visit. Through the weekend, hilarity ensues as siblings argue over women and motorcycles, a mother creates self-loathing in her gluten-intolerant daughter, and complicated and unique secrets are unveiled over white wine. 

The twist is that the family is played by actors of color. With this unconventional casting in Winkler's laugh-out-loud “white people by the water” genre play, she sends up some of our favorite American plays and helps us see the inherent inequities on stage and in life. TWO MILE HOLLOW is the perfect parody during this national moment, when our identity as Americans is being questioned more than ever before. 

TWO MILE HOLLOW features Rinabeth Apostol*, Greg Ayers, Sean Fenton*, Karen Offereins, and Michelle Talgarow.
