It is 1982, and Bridget returns home to Lansing looking for a respite from a failing NYC acting career, and a troubled, abusive marriage. Longing for the comfort of a stay with her grandmother Hannah, what she finds is a family struggling with change. Hannah, the strong, independent matriarch of the family, is no longer as self-sufficient as she was, and her family is at odds on how to bet ensure her safety. With gentle humor, honesty and heart, this play is a beautiful examination of family, transition and the importance of being there for each other.
Performances for The Safe House will run from October 3 through November 3 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at eight o’clock and Sunday afternoons at two o’clock. Starting October 12th three o’clock performance will be added to the remaining Saturdays of the run. The first four performances of The Safe House, October 3 – 6, are Preview performances where audience members will have the opportunity to take part in the process of creating a show by participating in a talkback session with the director following each performance. The Official Opening Night is Friday, October 11 and the Conversation Sunday for The Safe House is Sunday, October 27.
