The Few, by Samuel D. Hunter

It's 1999; uncertainty and instability are in the air. Four years earlier, Bryan abandoned his labor of love, a newspaper for truckers that he founded with his friends. Now he's returned to small-town Idaho with no word of where he's been, and everything has changed. One friend is gone, the other  his former lover  has traded idealism for realism, and their new-ish co-worker is emotionally invested in a paper now filled with personal ads instead of perspectives. Hunters play is a "compassionate, gently-hued drama about lonely lives" (The New York Times) desperately searching for a renewed faith in humanity.

From Samuel D. Hunter, award winning-author and recipient of the MacArthur Foundation "Genius" Grant, comes this "compassionate, gently-hued drama about lonely lives" (New York Times) desperately searching for a renewed faith in humanity.

The cast of The Few features Baakari Wilder (Broadways Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk; Unexpected Stage Companys Trifles) as Bryan, Dawn Thomas Reidy (Unexpected Stage Companys Romeo and Juliet: Love Knows No Bounds) as QZ, and Andrew Flurer (Pallas Theatre Collectives Assassins) as Matthew. Voiceover actors currently include award-winning D.C.-area playwright Audrey Cefaly, Ira Joe Fisher (former weather reporter for the CBS Saturday Early Show), Michael Grenham (executive manager and conservatory director at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting), and Zach Brewster-Geisz (Unexpected Stage Companys Oblivion).
