Northeast Local


Tom Donaghy

Published by Dramatists Play Service

2 Male 2 Female

The story follows Mickey and Gi from their meeting in the late summer, 1963, until their parting thirty years later. He is a steel worker who cannot foresee the approaching end of that industry

She, sensing emerging possibilities for women, hopes soon to find her calling. By the end of the first scene they have already conceived Stefan, and over the next decades they will struggle to stay afloat as time - and the times - move more quickly than either would have imagined

Other influences in Mickey and Gi's lives are Jesse, who's moved North from New Orleans to open a pastry shop, and Mickey's immigrant mother, Mair, who finds so many things about her new world impossible to accept

Northeast Local is an elegy for a certain time, place, and class in America, as much as it is for the movement of time itself

"Donaghy's play explores a family story over the course of thirty years, starting in 1963 Donaghy writes very skillfully and brings to his story considerable poignancy and resonance" ~ NY Post
