EgoPo Classic Theater presents Cold Harbor, the first of three performances in Tony Award-winning playwright John Guare's Lydie Breeze Trilogy. In development for 30 years, EgoPo will present the world premiere of the full trilogy, which has never reached completion as the single theatrical experience Guare intended it to be. Set between the Civil War and the birth of 20th-century industrialism, the epic trilogy begins with Lydie's childhood in the age of American whaling on Nantucket. EgoPo will present each of the three plays with two-week individual runs, followed by two weeks of performances offering the complete three-play cycle staged over the course of a full day.
