Join Playwright and Guild Hall 2021 Guild House Artist-in-Residence, Ryan Campbell for the premiere of his one-person play, Speed Kills in the Slaughter West featuring actor, Ariana Venturi. 

“The cathedral was on fire. I set the fire.” These are the first thoughts we hear from Wren Blair as we watch her tour her most caustic & chaotic memories. Has she made the right choices? Are right choices even possible? 

The evening will be presented as a YouTube Premier event on Guild Hall’s YouTube channel. Campbell will be joining the premier to answer questions from viewers in real time about the work and residency.

About Guild Hall’s Guild House Artist-in-Residence Program
Established in 2016, Guild Hall’s Guild House Artist-in-Residence (GHAIR) program offers artists and collectives the time and space to research, experiment, and develop new ideas/projects. Throughout the month-long residency, residents connect with accomplished artists, community leaders, and philanthropists at weekly salon dinners, receive mentorship from select members of our Academy of the Arts and Staff, and visit artist studios, cultural centers, and the natural preserves of the Hamptons. 

Due to the Covid19 pandemic, the Winter 2021 GHAIR program was completed remotely from each artists home/studio.
