GOING TO A PLACE
WHERE YOU ALREADY ARE

By Bekah Brunstetter
Directed by Matt Hawkins

(this is also the press opening)

Featuring Redtwist company members Kathleen Ruhl & Abby Dillion

THE PLAY
A fun-loving couple, Roberta and Joe, are avowed atheists in their golden years, moving along nicely until Roberta undergoes a serious medical diagnosis. Funny and poignant, this is an insightfully compassionate play about a senior couple navigating the land mines of their advancing years in a delightfully carefree manner, until life catches up and demands some big-time decisions about faith.
