The December installment of Primary Stages ESPA Detention, a monthly performance series that fosters collaboration and new play development within the Primary Stages ESPA community of artists, pays particular attention to artistic partnerships and the idea of home as it showcases the company's artists at the Cherry Lane Theatre. Writers and actors will be paired, and writers will then create a monologue specifically for the actors based on these conversations and collaborations. Actors will then be paired with ESPA directors, and this night of monologues will be on December 3.
