Eleanor, a biology major at Princeton, brings her boyfriend Rob home to meet her two moms. While there, she lets them know that she has hired a private investigator to help her find her biological father. She says, as a scientist, she is curious about her genetics. But it’s evident she might also just want to meet her dad. Nadine, her non-biological mom thinks it’s a great idea. Allison, Eleanor’s biological mom is insisting that Eleanor’s father, a one night stand in college whose name Allison doesn’t remember, never even knew she existed. Eleanor is sent on a journey to an unexpected and explosive answer to the question “Where do I come from?”

Directed by Guy Sanville, the cast features resident artists Michelle Mountain (Grass Lake), Caitlin Cavannaugh (Chicago), Casaundra Freeman (Detroit), Rusty Mewha (Plymouth), and Jeremy Kucharek (Canton). Set design is by Sarah Pearline, properties by Danna Segrest, costumes by Shelby Newport, lighting by Noele Stollmack, and sound by Tom Whalen. Thomas Macias is the stage manager.

“Never Not Once” contains adult language and themes and is not suitable for children under the age of 13.
