9 Oct 2021 to 23 Oct 2021 Once Only Event
An intergenerational poignant play about growing up and growing old.
Octogenarian and feisty political activist Vera Joseph’s solitary existence is shaken when her grandson Leo appears at her door in the middle of the night, having crossed the country on his bicycle with his best friend. As an overnight couch-surf turns into an extended stay, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder and ultimately reach each other through a moving and amusing battle of wits.
A Pulitzer Prize Finalist and Winner of an Obie Award and the New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, Amy Herzog’s compassionate and unsentimental play explores the funny, frustrating and ultimately life changing relationship, with a grandson learning to face his life and a grandmother who is starting to forget hers.
“That’s why I’m here. Because I don’t know where else to be.”
