Jen Silverman's All the Roads Home World Premiere Starts Performances
Performances of the world premiere have begun at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park.
Playwright Jen Silverman's play with songs follows three generations of women and the legacies they inherit. In the 1950s, teenager Madeleine runs away to New York with hopes of becoming a dancer. Twenty years later, her own headstrong daughter Max, a wannabe cowboy, rebels against the same small-town Massachusetts life that drove her mother away. Fast forward 30 more years, and Max's daughter Nix travels the country as a musician, chasing a fantasy that may or may not be her own. As the daughters face the ripple effect of their mothers' choices, they wrestle with their own half-buried dreams and desires in this coming-of-age story.
All the Roads Home stars Tina Chilip (Cathy, Max, Mercy), Rebecca S'manga Frank (Madeleine, Ade), Tramell Tillman (Michael, Phoenix, Trace), and Libby Winters (Teacher, Dolly Parton, July, Nix). Lee Sunday Evans directs.
The creative team includes Dane Laffrey (set design), Kathleen Geldard (costume design), Mark Barton (lighting design), and Daniel Kluger (composer and sound design). Jenifer Morrow is the production stage manager, and Suann Pollock is the stage manager.
Performances continue through April 23.
