The Story: Aging actor Edward has had a stroke and can now speak only in Shakespearean quotations. Edward’s long-suffering son Rob reluctantly agrees to take Edward in. No one likes the situation except for Miri, Edward’s teenage granddaughter who is an aspiring actor. This warm and funny exploration of a family learning how to be functional again was written by Scott Alan Andrews of Mount Vernon. An all-star cast of FKP stock company members and some newcomers will make this production memorable. Performances will take place May 13 – 15 and 20 – 22 at the Firehouse Performing Arts Center in Fairhaven. Tickets will go on sale in April through brownpapertickets.com.

This delightful script was written by Spokane playwright Craig Rickett. It offers some rare roles for older women and is full of sly humor. FKP will be producing the Western Washington premiere in the fall of 2016.
