About the Show
That Night in the Field
by Christopher Lockheardt
directed by Andrea Humez
A black envelope, a visit from a summer fling, and a mysterious hammering in the old field set off accusations and recriminations at the family gathering for Mary Gillen's 27th birthday.
Director: Andrea Humez has directed The Rimers of Eldritch, Arms and the Man, and several smaller shows for Theatre@First, and has appeared onstage in several T@F productions. Other directing credits include: The Importance of Being Earnest (Arlington Friends of the Drama), Spike Heels, The Lion In Winter, Hapgood, and Arcadia (The Occasional Players).
Playwright: Christopher Lockheardt has had 24 of his short plays produced more than 150 times by over 70 different theaters in the United States, Canada, Ireland, Hong Kong, and Australia. His work has been included in eight short play anthologies, including the last three volumes of Smith & Kraus’s Best Ten-Minute Plays of the Year.
Program Director: Vickie Wu-Torpey
FirstWorks is Theatre@First's workshop program for new plays. With this program we aim to engage with Boston-area playwrights and support new works. One full-length play will be chosen for each session of FirstWorks. Playwrights will have the opportunity to gain feedback on their work from experienced directors and actors during the revision process, followed by a staged reading with feedback from our enthusiastic and insightful audience.
