Yankee Tavern
Written by Steven Dietz
March 2, 3, 2019

Just when you thought you’d heard every crazy 9/11 conspiracy theory, a stranger walks into the Yankee Tavern. There, inside the walls of this crumbling New York tavern, a young couple finds themselves caught up in what might be the biggest conspiracy of all. Steven Dietz’s acclaimed and already widely produced dramatic thriller—a selection of the National New Play Network’s Continued Life Project—is a fierce, funny and ultimately mind-bending work of theatrical power that grips you until the final word. What you don’t know can hurt you.

And now daughter Ruth unveils her plan to write a play about the family miracle. However, as her plans unravel, the family’s faith is shaken to the very core by a deathbed confession.
