Join us for a staged reading of the Unrequited written and directed by Jeff Mandels. Part of the FIRST DRAFT staged reading series presented by the Edmonds Driftwood Players and Driftwood After Dark.

30 January, 1940. We are in the psychiatric hospital at Wiesloch, Germany as we see four female patients on the eve of being sent to a transfer center where they will receive special care. Our nurse in charge of this group, Nurse Ava Gerhard, has a secret. And so our story begins…

Runtime: 90-minutes without an intermission

*Content warning: This story contains dark themes, but it needs to be told. It does have comedic elements, however, this play contains adult language and some violent behavior (although physicality is limited due to scripts on music stands). Themes include Nazi Germany, suicide, sex work, eugenics, and the mentally ill.

Please select a performance below.

First Draft is a free staged reading series, but we ask that you reserve tickets, in case of changes to capacity prior to the event. We are seating at 100% capacity, festival seating (not assigned). We will be checking people off on a door list upon arrival, so you will NOT receive printed tickets in the mail or at Will Call.
