Brenton Lengel “North to Maine” About the Appalachian Trail is Opening Off Broadway


Brenton Lengel “North to Maine” About the Appalachian Trail is Opening Off Broadway at the C.O.W. Theatre at 21 Clinton Street, New York.

North to Maine is the first play ever written about the Appalachian Trail and the
Thru-Hikers who walk it. Every year, in late March, nearly 2,000 people gather at
its southern terminus and attempt the feat of walking it, in its entirety, in a
single season. They come from all walks of life, and from all over the world. They
carry all their possessions on their backs, and sleep in tents and shelters along
the way, trusting their lives to providence, to the kindness of strangers, and to
their own hands. They do not walk for money, or fame; rather, they are driven to
walk, some would say compelled, by the journey itself.

CAST:
Tim Dowd as Adam
Adam La Faci as Creature Man
David Sitler as Kevin
Joie Bauer as Rock-stabber
Michelle Concha as Juice Box

:: Brenton Lengel :: North to Maine «.
