The Trinity River Plays was originally conceived as single, intimate, small-scale drama. As playwright Regina Taylor continued to work on it, the scope of the work expanded. This ambitious project now encompasses three related one-acts – Jarfly, Rain, and Ghoststory – and spans 20 years in the life of a family. Support from the Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award will provide critical additional rehearsal time to explore the relationships in this intricate trilogy. Presented in a co-production with Chicago’s acclaimed Goodman Theatre, this deeply human drama will first premiere here in Dallas and then go on to perform at one of the nation’s most esteemed theaters."

- Kevin Moriarty, Artistic Director, Dallas Theater Center, Dallas TX, The Trinity River Plays, by Regina Taylor, Co-production with Goodman Theatre
