PICT Classic Theatre

WHAT: Run the Rabbit Path
WHEN: February 2 – 16, 7:30 p.m. & 2 p.m.

Why You Should Go:

PICT Classic Theatre is debuting a world premiere with a cast, setting and playwright deeply rooted in Pittsburgh. Directed by Alan Stanford, “Run the Rabbit Path” is the newest work by esteemed playwright Ray Werner, who is renowned for his work in advertising.

A story about Irish-American siblings facing the difficult planning their father’s wake — in the very kitchen where he passed away — the nuanced drama is set against the backdrop of Pittsburgh’s steel mills and loosely based on Werner’s familial experiences.

Spend Valentine’s Day at the Mansions on Fifth, enjoying a three-course meal and spirited conversation with Werner before the play. On Feb. 15, join Werner for a pre-show bread making workshop.
