About this show

Trailerville takes place on Labor day weekend at the Trailerville Mobile Home Park in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana. Merdelle Harris' husband of forty-one years, Bobby, is rapidly deteriorating with Alzheimer's Disease. Merdelle's determined to care for him, to save him, if she can. In saving Bobby she's saving her own life, she believes. There are days Bobby doesn't know her, doesn't know himself. Death's not the worst thing that can happen in your life, that's what Merdelle Harris thinks. Arlis Bryant lives in the trailer next door with his daughter, her three children, and her beer-drinking, hot-tempered boyfriend. Arlis has fallen in love with Merdelle, and his attentions are both a comfort and a torment to her. She has to choose between the man who loved her once and the man who loves her now. The annual Labor Day Telethon provides a backdrop for the ensuing comedy/drama about love, family, obligation, and desire. The first preview performance on Friday, June 3 will be a benefit for the Alzheimer's Assosciation and tickets - for this performance only - are available by calling 212-802-4536 Special performance Tuesday, June 21 at 8:00pm.
