About the Show

The world premiere of Finish Line: A Documentary Play About the 2013 Boston Marathon will be presented by the Boch Center in association with Boston Theater Company at the Boch Center Shubert Theatre March 15-26. The play is directed by Joey Frangieh. Finish Line is supported by Highland Street Foundation, Cummings Foundation & The Boston Foundation.

The world premiere of Finish Line: A Documentary Play About the 2013 Boston Marathon brings a local story of recovery, resilience, and determination center stage. Through a transcript created verbatim from dozens of interviews, Finish Line uses powerful firsthand accounts to show how a community came together to heal and grow stronger after a tragic act of violence. Co-created in Boston by Joey Frangieh and Lisa Rafferty, the documentary style production features interviews from survivors, runners, doctors, police officers, journalists, clergy, students, and many others. Notable interviewees who contributed their stories include Boston Police Commissioner William Evans, news anchor Maria Stephanos, Life is Good founder John Jacobs, Massachusetts General Hospital trauma surgeon Dr. David R. King, 1976 Marathon winner Jack Fultz, and Boston Globe photographer John Tlumacki.

$3.00 of every ticket sold will be donated to support the Martin Richard Foundation and Martin’s Park.
