SigWorks: Damn Things Will Kill Ya

by Olivia Luzquinos

May 9, 2022



Ruth has terminal lung cancer – but won’t give up her cigarettes. As her adult children gather around her hospital bedside, old family dynamics erupt under the pressure as they grapple with faith, forgiveness, fear, and how to let go.

Damn Things Will Kill Ya is presented as part of SigWorks: Monday Night New Play Readings, an initiative that highlights and supports the work of DMV and regional playwrights. This series is an opportunity for playwrights, actors, directors, designers, and patrons to explore new plays in a fun and informal environment.
