Epic Theatre Company presents Leaving Rhode Island, by Kevin Broccoli

50 Rolfe Sq, Cranston, RI   (view map)

Kevin Broccoli’s ambitions are boundless. Five years ago he unleashed That Might Not Be Sex, with more than 80 actors delivering monologues on the theme (over four weekends). Charlie’s Funeral, The Acting Company, and This Might Not Be It were similarly gargantuan productions. Now Broccoli will herd more than 160 actors in six performances of Leaving Rhode Island. The premise: “In 2009, a large group of Rhode Islanders were told to leave the state for an unspecified length of time. Within a week, they had to leave family, friends, and the rest of their lives behind to start over in brand new places all over the world. Five years later, they’re told they can come home. Why were they told to leave? And why can they now return? Why were these people chosen? And the most important question of all — will they come back?” To get all the answers, you’ll need to head to the Artists’ Exchange, 50 Rolfe Sq, Cranston, today and July 12, 18, 25, and 26 at 8 pm and July 20 at 7 | $15, $12 students + seniors |
