With the mission of cultivating new, exciting work by early-career artists, The 20-Something Project gives emerging playwrights the opportunity to build their plays and their professional relationships through productions by their peers. The Lost Theatre presents developmental readings of Chloe Carter Brown's BEAUTIFUL SOMEWHERE and Molly Hagan's THE SWING OF THE SEA.

A dark and stormy night over the fields of Galilee. After the mysterious disappearance of a rabbi, Yoav arrives at the surreal American outpost, Temple Farm, where he is greeted by Paul, Lily, Warren, and the Israeli Mariah, all united by their belief in the Holy Land. Yoav's arrival coincides with a birth, a vision, a barn burning, a death, and an intruder- leaving the group fragmented and asking the unavoidable question--what is the fate of faith in the face of human tragedy?
"It's this kind of focus and passion that is so encouraging to see in a young company making socially relevant work, and The Lost Theater is certainly a company to watch for the next few years." New York Theater Review
