Commissioned by Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, this comic play was inspired by a classic YouTube video showing "tweenage" girls overreacting to the last-round loss of their American Idol hero.  Pop media victim and addict Glorie is assigned after-school tutoring from Jacob, a bright but socially hopeless fellow sixth grader who has erected hopeless fantasies about his father's return from fighting overseas. Hilarity and reconciliation ensue, not necessarily complete or in that order. Suitable for ages 8 and above.

Arlene Hutton is the author of last year's FringeNYC hit RUNNING.

Running is... a strong showcase for

Hutton’s wit and craft" ~ TimeOutNY ★★★★

"Amid the traditional chaos of the New York International Fringe Festival this year is the intelligent, funny new play Running by Arlene Hutton."


Ms. Hutton, best known for The Nibroc Trilogy, has a fine ear for the fits and starts of conversation.... the loose, thinking-it-through-as-we-go quality is part of its charm. And that makes it a natural fit for the Fringe.” ~ NY Times
