THE BEST WE COULD (a family tragedy)
by Emily Feldman
directed by Joshua Kahan Brody

Thursday, April 26 at 7pm

The death of a beloved dog sparks a road trip across America and across time as a family asks, how did we get here? And, more importantly, where are we going? THE BEST WE COULD is an absurdist comedy that, despite everyone trying their best, transforms into a family tragedy.

Our annual reading series returns, featuring full-length readings of fresh new plays written at the farm by members our 2017 Working Farm writers group. Beer, wine and curated bites from SPACE chefs will follow each reading. Admission is free, registration is required.

Join us after this reading for a special closing talkback and reception with members of the 2017 Working Farm following the final reading of the series.
