News   Hook & Ladder Debuts in L.A., May 15
 
The Hook & Ladder, a first play by John Lavachelli, will have its world premiere at the Hudson Mainstage Theatre on May 15. The play is set in a suburban town and looks at the lives of two men whose lives take an abrupt turn when each travels far from home on a separate journey. One is in search of a nervous breakdown (he thinks), the other is seeking a "brass ring of sorts." Upon their return, the mens' perspectives of themselves and their hometown have changed forever.
