The Magnetic Theatre will present the world premiere of Karen Saari's intimate, affirming, and heartfelt play,  In A Clearing. 

Mark is three months into sobriety. He is still haunted by the death of close friend, who died in an unexplained roadside accident after a night of hard partying. The looming guilt Mark secretly feels about his friend's death has motivated him to become sober; a challenging feat in the small north woods, Wisconsin small town where he has always lived. Seeing friends, family, and the world in a whole new light; Mark rekindles a relationship with Pam, an old "friend" from school and the aggrieved sister of his dead friend, and finally solves the mysteries of his own heart.

The production is being directed by Andrew Gall, The Magnetic Theatre's co-Artistic Director.
