About this show

Laugh at the antics of an aging thespian-patriarch and the complexity of his relationship with his wife and daughter in The Family Gold, a new comedy by Annie Reiner, featuring film, TV and stage star Harold Gould in his Victory Gardens debut. Artistic Director Dennis Zacek directs. Ted Gold, once a great Shakespearean actor, is still the "star" of his family. At least that's how it looks to his wife, Ruth, and daughter, Dory, who is struggling to make a family of her own. The play follows the Golds through the hilarious minutiae of everyday life, while exploring the bonds of family and the ghosts of the past. With The Family Gold, Reiner challenges the mind and spirit, and tickles the funny bone. There is a 2 p.m. matinee on Wednesday, October 6, and no shows Tuesday, September 21; Tuesday, October 5; or 8 p.m., Wednesday, October 6.
