In association with Boston Theater Company, The Boch Center will present the world premiere of Finish Line: A Documentary Play About the 2013 Boston Marathon March 14 – 26, 2017 at the The Boch Center Shubert Theatre. Press night is set for Wednesday, March 15 at 7:00PM. Tickets go on sale to the general public Sunday, September 11, 2016 at 10:00AM.
Finish Line: A Documentary Play About the 2013 Boston Marathon is directed by Boston Theater Company Artistic Director Joey Frangieh. It is a story of recovery, resilience, and determination that focuses on how a community came together to heal and grow stronger, rather than on the act of violence itself. The script is created verbatim from dozens of interviews. Among those interviewed are survivors, runners, doctors, police officers, journalists, clergy, students, and many others. Notable interviewees who contributed their stories include Police Commissioner William Evans, news anchor Maria Stephanos, Life is Good founder John Jacobs, Boston Strong co-author Dave Wedge, 1976 Marathon winner Jack Fultz, and Boston Globe photographer John Tlumacki. The play is co-created by Joey Frangieh and Lisa Rafferty.
