Mae returns home to take care of Dad and — maybe (a little) — herself. Written by 2014 P73 Playwriting Fellow Clare Barron and directed by Obie Award winner Anne Kauffman, You Got Older is a tender and darkly comic new play about family, illness, and cowboys — and how to remain standing when everything you know comes crashing down around you.

We’re delighted to announce that Alexander Borinksy, David Jenkins, and Gabrielle Reisman will join 2014 P73 Playwriting Fellow Clare Barron at our 2014 Summer Residency from August 18-23. Each of these writers was a finalist for the 2014 P73 Playwriting Fellowship, and we’re delighted to have them join us for one of our favorite weeks of the year up on the beautiful Yale University campus!
- David Jenkins and director Stephen Brackett will be working with actors Dashiell Eaves, Frank Deal, Lee Roy Rogers, and Yale School of Drama student Maura Hooper on David’s play Pinewood (which you may remember from our fall 2013 Interstate 73 reading), a strange comedy about the ghost that remains as a family ages and irrevocably drifts apart;
- Gabrielle Reisman will develop Storm, Still, a riff on the story of Lear told from the perspective of his three daughters, with director Portia Krieger and actors Celeste Arias, Sarah Nina Hayon, and Kate Benson;
- Clare Barron will be working on her play You Got Older, which follows a woman as she returns home to help care for her father;
- Alex Borinsky, will develop his solo play, Baltimore, about his hometown.

Tate may only be 24, but she’s already spent years working as one of Manhattan’s best drug dealers, thanks to her charming older mentor Jackson. When her boyfriend proposes, Tate’s desire for a new life forces her to pull away from the only career and father figure she has ever known. Among painful revelations and betrayals, Tate learns the price of breaking free and the cost of survival. All We Are looks at a generation trying to rise to the height of their ambitions, and the perpetual uncertainty of the climb.

We were so thrilled by the love shown to our playwrights at Page 73’s Spring Benefit on Friday. From Michael Mitnick‘s incredible songs to the imaginative and hilarious Bake Off excerpts from Robert Askins, Caroline V. McGraw and Heidi Schreck, the whole event illustrated the extraordinary legacy our writers have created at Page 73. It was a fantastic night!
The evening was not only a lot of fun, but also a great success. We are so thankful for the support our benefit received, helping to ensure Page 73’s future as a home for ambitious and excellent work. Thanks to our generous community, we raised $115,000 for our programs for early-career playwrights. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We can’t wait to show you the next great projects from our writers — stay tuned!
Liz, Asher, Michael and Rachel
