It all started with a dog, igniting a series of events that rip Lilyâs 16-year-old universe - and her entire family - asunder. Her brother is missing. Her parents have split. And Lily has revolted, declaring war on her mother. When the new English teacher arrives, both daughter and mother are challenged to face their past and present. Colors Inside the Body is an exploration of violence filtered through the lives of 3 women whose paths cross inextricably one semester at Regan High, where lockdown drills are the norm. So is growing up with a gun.
Colors Inside the Body was developed through Berkshire Voices and received a reading at St. James Pace in Great Barrington before going on to receive a reading at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater in NYC as part of Texas Wesleyan's 2019 Playmarket.
