Like 40 Productions opens the season with Bruce Graham's Early One Evening at the Rainbow Bar and Grill, an apocalyptic comedy/drama of love, death and rebirth.
Written by Bruce Graham, the play is set in a bar in a small Pennsylvania town. Shep, one of the bartenders, is a writer who has just sold his first book. Shirley, the other bartender, is trying to finish her list of "things I've never done but wanted to do." Willie, the town hot head, is on a shooting spree, while Virginia, a local gym teacher, is trying to get to Colorado to see her family one last time. Bullard is an aluminum siding salesman, desperately seeking refuge with one of the families he sold bomb shelters to back in the Cold War era. Roy, the local mechanic, is on a looting spree and wants to visit Disney World. And then in walks Joe, a stranger with a calm, pleasant demeanor who seems to know everyone's names and the details of their lives. Could this be God?
