In This Flat Earth, a bewildered seaside town community is thrust into the spotlight following the unthinkable. In the wake of the chaos, two 13-year-olds attempt to make sense of the events, their lives, and the future.

The production will feature scenic design by Tony Award winner Dane Laffrey, costume design by Tony Award winner Paloma Young, lighting design by two-time Tony Award and three-time Drama Desk Award winner Christopher Akerlind and sound design by Mikhail Fiksel. Production stage manager is Cole P. Bonenberger.

Ferrentino’s plays include Ugly Lies the Bone and Amy and the Orphans, which is now in previews at Roundabout Theatre Company. Her other works are Kokomo, Moonlight on the Bayou, Magic Man, and Paradise Bar and Grill.
