Crabby but endearing Gustin Novak reflects on the women he has loved over his 88 years in Noah Haidle's latest play, Saturn Returns.
The play opens on Gustin explaining to his home health nurse that he has called her not because he's sick, but because he's lonely. His daughter is gone. His wife is gone. But, we learn, their presence still fills the house.
This inventive, time-bending story soon introduces a 58-year-old Gustin and his daughter, Zephyr, as well as a 28-year-old Gustin and his wife, Loretta.
