Trailer (2019)



"This here's an arena."


High school English teacher David, and his wife, Susan, return to David’s rural hometown in Arkansas for the funeral of his estranged, alcoholic father. While visiting the emptied-out garage where his father used to fix cars, the couple unexpectedly encounters Brandon, David’s childhood bully. During an alcohol-infused night in the garage together, David, Susan, and Brandon reveal parts of themselves in unexpected, intimate, sometimes violent ways.

Garage was originally devised by Dive Theatre in New York City (written by Michael Hogwood, Nathan Riley, Bryce Kemph, Jenna Kirk, and Jason Cutler), with rewrites in 2014 by Jason Cutler, and was premiered in its new form by Seoul Shakespeare Company in 2017. It was revived in 2019 as a co-production between Seoul Shakespeare Company and Speech of Fire.
