Teen Dad
by Filigree Theatre

Jan. 05



Abby, a precocious emo-goth teenager, orchestrates a surprise reunion for her mother Tanya and birth father Tom, with the help of her mom's fiance/healer John. Hoping to provoke long-lasting reconciliation between her parents before her high school graduation, Abby's plans completely derail when Tom arrives with his new girlfriend Alisha. Can this family confront their past traumas, "deal and heal?" "Teen Dad" subverts popular regional theatre "kitchen-sink beach house dramedy" to share a heartfelt, comedic exploration of generational trauma and recovery in a mixed-race Black and Latinx family.

Directed by: Minerva Villa

The Filigree Theatre presents STAGE ONE, a staged reading workshop series introducing new works from both established and up-and-coming screenwriters & playwrights. The projects are performed by professional actors for an invited audience and fellow industry members. The dual goal of the series is both to bring together emerging artists (writers, actors & directors) and to champion great new written works.
