Mercy Mild, a new play by Deborah Finkelstein

At Christmastime, Joey is caught between his concern and caring for his down-and-out family and his need to escape them for a different life.

Since 2000, Tri-State has encouraged playwrights to submit new, unproduced scripts to their NEW PLAYS READING SERIES. Knowing that new writing is the life-blood of theater, the troupe rehearses and performs in concert and staged readings at least four new and untried plays every season so that the playwrights can "hear" their works read and performed by professional artists. Patrons relish the notion of helping writers find just the right "note" to play in these new works and do not hesitate to criticize and suggest what needs to be revised and what is good about these new pieces. Indeed, several of the new play readings have become productions in subsequent seasons.
