Gravitational Forces

A show with performances by Andrea Martin, Bobby Cannavale, and BD Wong. Need we say more?


Guest host Hope Davis presents three stories involving irresistible impulses and twists of fate. In Shirley Jackson’s “What a Thought,” an awful idea threatens a happy marriage; the celebrated horror writer can’t leave happily ever after alone. “What a Thought” is performed by Andrea Martin. A science teacher has a crush in Jess Walter’s “Magnificent Desolation,” performed by Bobby Cannavale. And “Draft Day” affects the lives of childhood friends from different backgrounds in Thai-American writer Rattawut Lapcharoensap’s story, read by BD Wong.
