Third Rail Rep: Sweet and Sad
1111 SW Broadway
September 27 - October 20
It's the 10th Anniversary of September 11 and the Apple family find themselves gathered together in Rhinebeck, N.Y. for an impromptu lunch before heading off to an afternoon memorial service. While Uncle Benjamin rehearses for a reading, emotions run the gamut as the Apples catch up on politics (both familial and political), tell ghost stories, tease each other mercilessly, and confront the difficulties of loss. Filled with humor and sorrow, Sweet and Sad celebrates the challenges of life in 21st century America.
7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays.
