March 5, 2020

Indy Pod Theater, a podcast dedicated to presenting, preserving, and sharing the work of Indiana playwrights and actors offers its debut production:  "Rita from Across the Street" by Lou Harry.

About "Rita from Across the Street":

Set in a New Jersey seaside town, this gentle comedy / drama focuses on a former boardwalk business owner who cares for his troubled brother while forging connections with the family that moves in next door for the summer. As weeks pass, secrets are revealed, the merits of front vs. back porches are debated, and lives are awakened. "Rita From Across the Street" has been workshopped in Indianapolis and presented as a reading in New York City.
