The playwright-centric Workhaus Collective opens its latest season with The Hollow, a new piece by Christina Ham. Now in its seventh year, Workhaus brings original productions by its member playwrights to the stage. The work was first presented at the center's Ruth Easton New Play Series last year. Ham's Southern gothic piece centers on Olivia and Wes, a couple who retreat to Olivia's family's New Orleans home, where a mystery is in the process of playing out. It involves the kidnapping of her half-brother, Preston, and the family maid, Rosette. Ham's most recent work was Ruby! The Story of Ruby Bridges, which was a hit earlier this year at SteppingStone Theatre. Previous Workhaus shows, where Ham is one of the member playwrights, include Glyph. She has also worked with the Guthrie, Red Eye, Penumbra, and the Goodman Theater in Chicago. The production is directed by Hayley Finn, the associate artistic director at the Playwrights' Center. The cast features Signe V. Harriday, Pearce Bunting, and Miriam Schwartz. (Photo by Kelsye Gould)
