A parody coupled with moments of disorienting sincerity, Two Mile Hollow explores the dysfunctional family with brutality, awe and compassion. When the Donnellys gather for a weekend in the country to hash out belongings from their recently sold estate, an emotional storm breaks inside while a literal storm brews outside. As this family of famous, longing-to-be-famous, and kind-of-a-mess-but-totally-Caucasian characters come together with their personal assistant, Charlotte, some really really complicated and totally unique secrets are revealed (over white wine).
(TWO MILE HOLLOW CONTAINS ADULT ORIENTED THEMES AND LANGUAGE. THIS PRODUCTION IS RECOMMENDED FOR THOSE 16 AND OLDER.)

PAY AS YOU ARE
This season premiers Theater Mu’s experimental Pay As You Are pricing. Mu strives to voice the stories of the Asian American community, and in order to bring performances to those communities whose stories they tell, Mu is committed to make them as accessible as possible. Pay As You Are pricing asks those who routinely pay $35-$40 for theater tickets to choose to pay that amount; it is the actual fair market value of the ticket. If an audience member needs to pay less, they can choose to pay less – as little as $5 per ticket. The minimum for the season subscription that includes the four mainstage shows is $50, with fair market value for the package at $100.
MEET THE PLAYWRIGHT
Theater Mu’s 2018 season, Through Her Eyes, is a dedication to the celebration of female playwrights and protagonists. Leah Nanako Winkler, Two Mile Hollow’s playwright, is a Japanese American playwright from Kamakura, Japan and Lexington Kentucky. Her plays have been published in Nanjing University’s Stage and Screen Reviews, Smith and Krauss, Sam French, and Dramatists Play Service. She was an artist in residence at New Group/Urban Arts Initiative, a winner of the 2015 Samuel French OOB Short Play Festival, a 2015 and 2016 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize nominee, a two time recipient of the A/P/A commission for the Japanese American National Museum, a recipient of the Truman Capote Fellowship for Creative Writing, a member of the Dorothy Strelsin New American Playwrights Group, a 2016 Sloan Commission recipient with the Ensemble Studio Theatre, a commissioned writer with 2G, a 2016-2018 Time Warner fellow at the Women’s Project, an alumnus of Youngblood, and a 2017 Sundance/Ucross Fellow. Two Mile Hollow is listed on the New Play Exchange and was selected for the 2017 Kilroys List. The New York Times called her a “distinctive new voice.”
