A compilation of four different plays, Home Grown is the A2CT Studio Series season opener. The start of the play is based around Pre-existing Conditions, a one-act written by Ann Arbor local Madeline Diehl. The plot focuses on a man and a woman who develop an unexpected connection with one another. The second half of the performance is a series of three, 10-minute plays, starting with Assigned Blessing by Connie Bennett. Home Grown then flows into Corker, written by Sophia Blumenthal and How to Kill Yourself With a Gun and a Bottle of Pills by Ron Riekki. The concluding three plays are all selections from the summer’s original play festival. These four original plays come together to tell an interesting story for the audience to enjoy. August 17-19. 8pm Friday-Saturday; 2pm Sunday. $10-$20. Ann Arbor Civic Theater, 322 W. Ann Street, Ann Arbor. 734-971-0605. www.a2ct.org.
