WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Blue Collar Theater Company presents the premiere of The Roof, written by Suzanne Bradbeer, directed by Maggie Low. Beginning in 1919, and told over a twenty year period, The Roof is a bittersweet family saga about three complicated people who love each other deeply but clumsily, and affect each other profoundly. George needs his fraternal twin brother Billy in order to shine most brightly, but Billy needs to escape George's dominating presence in order to survive. Their mother Arabella needs to keep her boys close in order to feel safe in the world. The action takes place in what passes as the family's backyard, the roof of their building in New York City. Through humor and heart rending conflict, we learn that family life in this triangle is as much a battlefield as the one in Germany where the boys' father was killed just after the armistice of the First World War.
