Alley Theatre’s Alley All New presents a reading of Claire Kiechel’s Pilgrims. The special reading is a part of the new Alley All New Reading Series, an ongoing series featuring new work in various stages of the development process.

Pilgrims begins on a spacecraft on its way to colonize a newly discovered planet. A soldier and a teenage girl live together in one of the ship’s cabins with only an outdated robot and each other for company. When they are quarantined in their close quarters due to a potential outbreak, they’re forced to explore their own traumatic pasts in a dying society. A sly commentary on the American present set in the future, Pilgrims dramatizes how we never seem to change from the past.

The reading will be followed by a post-performance conversation with Kiechel, led by Elizabeth Frankel. Recommended for mature audiences.
