Fall 2018 - Island Stage Left Presents SLOWGIRL, by Greg Pierce
A story, told with humor and sensitivity, about the friendship between a reclusive uncle and his teenage niece as they navigate the delicate regions of guilt, innocence and truth.
Becky, a seventeen year old, has fled to her hermitic uncle’s retreat in the Costa Rican jungle to escape the aftermath of a terrible accident. The week they spend together forces them both to confront who they are and what they are running from.
We see the many ways tragedy can unmoor a life and the power of family to both wound and heal. It is an engaging and compassionate story, and, as it reveals itself, the play touchingly charts the loving
complexities of families.
