WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Working Farm is the resident playwrights group of SPACE on Ryder Farm, a nonprofit artist residency program located on an idyllic 221-year-old organic farm in Brewster, New York. Every summer, the Working Farm offers eight playwrights five fully subsidized residency weeks on the farm. While in residence, each of the playwrights focuses on developing a single new work. Following the residency, they are invited to present their full-length plays in the Working Farm Reading Series. All readings are free, and farm-fresh bites inspired by the plays and prepared by SPACE chefs are served at each reading. The 2017 series consists of Bonnie's Last Flight by Eliza Bent (April 3), East of West Town by Cusi Cram (April 4), Scotland by Daisy Foote (April 5), Talkin' to This Chick Sippin' Magic Potion by James Anthony Tyler (April 6), and Sometimes It's Dirt, Sometimes It's Bones by Ryan King (April 7).
