Matrix Theatre Company is pleased to offer a special ticket deal for opening weekend performances of The Velocity of Autumn. Entertainment industry professionals attending performances Friday, November 20 – Sunday, November 22 will receive $5 OFF their tickets when they use the code INDUSTRY at the box office.

Matrix Theatre Company continues its 25th Anniversary Season with The Velocity of Autumn, a witty yet touching play about the frustrations of aging and the upheaval that usually accompanies it. This play by Eric Coble opens at Matrix Theatre Friday, November 20 and runs through Sunday, December 13, 2015. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 3 pm. All productions are presented at Matrix Theatre Company, located at 2730 Bagley in the heart of Detroit’s Mexicantown. Ticket prices range from $15 to $20. Group rates are available for most shows. For further information or to order tickets, go to www.matrixtheatre.org, or call 313 967 0599.

Directed by David Wolber, Coble’s play opens on 79-year-old Alexandra, who, determined to continue living life on her own terms, has barricaded herself in her Brooklyn apartment and surrounded herself with dozens of homemade Molotov cocktails. Her son and daughter, after failing to convince her it’s time to leave her home, finally engage the help of Chris, their gay, estranged, artist brother to help in the attempt. He becomes an unlikely mediator and attempts to save not only his mother’s life but his own in this wickedly funny and achingly poignant play which exposes the fragility and ferocity of life. Jane MacFarlane plays Alexandra and Chris Korte plays Chris.

“We’re excited to offer this promotion to our friends in the theatre and entertainment communities,” said Communications and Development Coordinator, Molly McMahon. “The award-winning director, actors, and design team behind this production are brilliant and we think this is a great opportunity for those in the theatre industry, especially those who haven’t been to Matrix recently or ever, to experience the thought-provoking, relevant theatre we’re known for.”
