Four hikers on the Appalachian Trail (two day hikers and two thru-hikers) converge on a shelter for the night that’s already occupied by a feral little girl who appears to live there. Syd and Sam struggle with Syd’s depression while Alex and Leah are on the brink of an engagement or breaking up depending on who you ask. From the struggle to agree on the perfect trail food or mosquito repellent to the agony of walking into a spider web, this is a quirky exploration of why you should absolutely sweat the small stuff.
Cast: Adam Basco-Mahieddine, Sajda Waite, Peter Sanzone and more to be announced.
The reading will be followed by a brief feedback-session.
