A new play by Luscinda Dickey
To be workshopped in 2021
“How can I even describe The Suitcase? To me, it’s a powerful, emotional, witty drama filled with some of the most delightful people I have ever met. It has taken me, the writer, on some amazing adventures and I hope that it can do the same for you too!” —Luscinda Dickey
