About This Show

A young Rachel watches her dejected father and mother deal with the day-to-day drudgery of their lives in a small Western Massachusetts town, determined to hold the family together while her older brother Billy looks for an escape. Their lives are interrupted by the comings and goings of equally desperate friends, and a teacher whose own desires disrupt everything in an unexpected way.

Scarcity is a part of the the inaugural Theater: Village Festival, an annual theatrical event of five plays centered around one playwright or theme running simultaneously in five different West Village venues.
