WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Two powerhouse performers return to the stage in a darkly comic tour de force from the creator of The Overcoat. Academy Award winner Olympia Dukakis (Steel Magnolias, Moonstruck, A.C.T.'s Hecuba) and beloved Bay Area actor Marco Barricelli (A.C.T.'s Long Day's Journey into Night and A Streetcar Named Desire) tackle this moving, surprising work by major Canadian writer and director Morris Panych. Barricelli stars as a self-involved bachelor who is summoned to care for an elderly aunt, whom he hasn't seen since childhood. As their relationship evolves in unexpected ways, this taut, terrific stunner explores complex emotions of family, friendship, and the human condition.
