Alley Theatre presents Alley All New Festival: Quack
The Alley All New Festival provides playwrights the resources needed to grow their work. The festival also offers audiences a first look at plays that may appear in full productions at the Alley, as well as at theatres around the country.
Irving Baer is America’s doctor. His daytime health and wellness show is watched by millions of women. When enterprising young blogger River Thumbolt publishes an article implicating Dr. Baer in a national health crisis, America begins to turn on him. But Dr. Baer adores being adored. With his career suddenly hanging in the balance, his marriage on the rocks, and his carefully maintained public persona in peril, one thing becomes clear… If Irving Baer is going to fall from grace, he’s bringing River Thumbolt with him.
Quack is a play by Eliza Clark about when happens when good people forget their best intentions.
