Theatre Tribe presents the West Coast premiere of Cairo, written by Arthur Melville Pearson, and directed by Jon Cellini.
James Jennsen has informed his family that at midnight tonight, his deceased mother and grandparents are returning to pick him up in a blue '51 Chevy.
Alarmed, his sisters and father gather for dinner at the soon-to-be-subdivided family farm in Cairo, Illinois. What begins as a humorous kitchen-sink drama unfolds into a poetic exploration of the spiritual and physical consequences of a family's disconnection, both from each other and the land they love.
Tickets for the Gala Preview on 10/7/06 cost $50 each.
Appropriate for ages 14+
