POD

by ARABELLA ARNOTT   directed by MATT JAMIE

 

Pod is a heartfelt drama about identity, dealing with grief, and running away from secrets.  Pod was originally scheduled to run in May 2020 but postponed due to the pandemic, and now a play about a family coming together through difficult times seems more appropriate than ever…
