Companionship (A Staged Reading)

by Kara O'Rourke

Companionship by Kara ORourke

Companionship explores pop culture’s obsession with romance and de-valuing of platonic relationships by following employees at a Cosmopolitan-esque magazine, who might just be a little less lonely if they’d turn to each other rather than always pursuing a Mr., Ms., or Mx. Right. In a city beset by constant rains due to climate change, a city services volunteer, several magazine writers, and a cat must navigate absurdist infomercials, flooded subway tunnels, and the social mandates of partnership to help each other find safety and company.

This staged reading will be an opportunity to hear Kara’s thesis project in playwriting for the English major Creative Writing Concentration read out loud.
