Need a break from all the laughter and song this weekend? PURE’s new show Yankee Tavern should sober you right up ... in a good way. The psychological thriller from Steven Dietz is making its S.C. premiere on Friday. The play follows a young couple in New York who find themselves in the middle of a major government conspiracy. PURE reps describe the play as “fierce, funny, and ultimately mind-bending.” We like the sound of that.

PURE’s Artistic Director Sharon Graci directs and Will Hodges, Randy Neale, Katie Huard, and Mark Poremba make up the cast. “Steven Dietz has drawn a wonderfully taut drama with complex characters orbiting each other with precision, but always in danger of collision,” Graci says. “It’s a fast-paced thriller that will leave you questioning what you believe.” Don’t miss the pay-what-you-can preview on Thurs. Jan. 21. —Erica Jackson
