PURE Theatre to produce Southeastern Regional Premiere of This Random World by Stephen Dietz

“…affecting…The characters are drawn with empathy and humor, and the cascading series of coincidences neatly illustrates the idea that, as the title suggests, we are all hostages to chance.”
—NY Times

CHARLESTON, SC (February 7, 2018) - Friday, March 9th, 2018, marks the Southeastern Regional premiere of This Random World by award-winning American playwright, Stephen Dietz. The fourth production of Season 15 at PURE Theatre, This Random World mines the comedy of missed connections, asking the serious question of how often we travel parallel paths through the world without noticing. From an ailing woman who plans one final trip, to her daughter planning one great escape and her son falling prey to a prank gone wrong, this funny, intimate, and heartbreaking play explores the lives that may be happening just out of reach of our own.

Regular performance times are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30pm with an added matinee performance at 3:00pm on Saturday, March 24th, 2018.
