The Gulf

Writer's Center
4508 Walsh Street Bethesda

Two Women. A Boat. The Gulf. Kendra and Betty. They want what we all want. To find peace. Two lost and lonely people, six years into a volatile, troubled love affair, and then one night, it breaks. On a quiet summer evening, somewhere down in the Alabama Delta, Kendra and Betty troll the flats looking for red fish. They banter, they bicker, as any long time couple. As the skies darken, the ordinary fishing trip becomes an intense journey through the twists and turns brought on by the runaway mine train that is their dying relationship. Peter's Alley is proud to present The Lammy and Edgarton Award-winning, The Gulf, by local star playwright Audrey Cefaly, as our Inaugural production at our new home in Bethesda!

DC Metro Theater Arts - Highly Recommended

"...Silences speak loudly in the first Maryland production of The Gulf by Audrey Cefaly at the Writer's Center in Bethesda. This professional production by Peter's Alley Theatre group, features two tender, powerful performances by Jasmine Brooks and Anna Fagan, and should be a must-see for anyone interested in realistic theatre that tests the boundaries of possibility and love."

"...The involving thing about The Gulf is that Cefaly is not interested in resolution and answers to Kendra and Betty's polarized relationship. She presents these two women as whole stories unto themselves, stories that unwind and rewind over an intense period of time before drifting away and dispersing like the tides."
