Generations Rise: Reston


About the Production

Generations Rise: Reston uplifts and shares real-life stories made by individuals from Reston, VA. Created in partnership with Reston Community Center (RCC), this new work in the Undesirable Elements series reflects on Reston's unique history and utopian vision as the nation's first planned community, and what brought their families to Reston. The production addresses themes of healing, grief, growth, struggles with mental health and identity, the impact of COVID, and the search for community.

Generations Rise: Reston is created by Sara Zatz, PCC's Associate Director and Artistic Leadership Team Member, and theatre artist Tuyet Thi Pham in association with the cast.
