Ohio, Revisited

OHIO, REVISITED is an exhilarating, hour-long tale of four siblings in rural 1950s America coming of age and weathering the tragic trials of their time.

As soon as one sibling’s heart starts to rumble, so do all the rest of the hearts. As soon as one leaves home, it’s only a matter of time a’fore the others leave, each in her own time. Ultimately they’re bound by something that lets them know who they are. When they go away, that binding gets lost. When they come home, it tightens up again like a knot in the rain.

A brave and spirited exploration of living and loss, OHIO, REVISITED is an unapologetic piece of experimental theatre. The story unfolds through a striking mix of poetic text, meticulous physicality, and transcendent original music. Originally titled What Happened in Ohio, the piece was developed over a year and a half and had its inaugural production at the New York Theatre Workshop 4th St. Theatre in May 2011. Afterwards, The Roadsters took on a radical re-imagining of the material in order to hone its originality and make it shine, going much deeper, thematically and theatrically, into the world of the play.
