Gloucester Stage Company to present Grand Horizons
Next in its 2022 season lineup, the Gloucester Stage Company will present GRAND HORIZONS, which was nominated for a Tony Award. The play, which is both funny and touching, is a fascinating look at the changing nature of love and a strong argument for women's humanity in today's culture. Robert Walsh will return to Gloucester Stage to direct the thought-provoking comedy about marital malaise written by Bess Wohl. It runs from July 29 through August 21.
Bill and Nancy have been happily married for fifty years. They can finish each other's sentences and anticipate each other's every sigh, snore, and sneeze. As their adult children descend on the Grand Horizons senior living community - they are forced to reexamine everything they thought they knew about their parents' happy lives. A powerhouse comedy that explores a family turned upside-down takes an intimate look at love's wild, unpredictable, and enduring nature.
GRAND HORIZONS brings together on the Gloucester Stage the married couple, Paula Plum (Nancy), and Richard Snee, (Bill). The talented cast includes Jeremy Beazlie, June Kfoury and Cristhian Mancinas Garcia (Tommy), Greg Maraio and Marissa Stewart (Jess).
"Playwright Bess Wohl has captured a situation that will resonate with families in any place and time! The roles we seem destined to be assigned, promulgate, or hope to shed...the hunger to live life to the fullest and how it's never too late to follow or attempt to fulfill your dream...is innate to us all, said Grand Horizon's Director Robert Walsh. "With a truly charming wit, insight and relevance, Grand Horizons will make you laugh out loud and nod in recognition of the foibles and realities of what it means to be a family."
GRAND HORIZONS will run from July 29 through August 21. Performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday at 3:00 pm at Gloucester Stage Company, 267 East Main Street, Gloucester, MA. Tickets are now on sale and available at GloucesterStage.com.
