About the Event

Directed by Scott Renderer Cast- Sandy Burke, Leslie Dame, Ben Runyon, Peg Wilson Wednesday night reading Sketched  together on a deceptively simple frame, this emotionally precise play  uses its spare structure to devastating and darkly comic effect. A  brother and sister have received word from their parents' caretaker that  their elderly parents may be a danger to each other. The brother breaks  his routine to join his sister and mother on their weekly lunch date in  hopes that together he and his sister can get a clearer picture of the  situation. As the mother confronts the indignities of age and the  children stare down a mounting list of losses and disappointments, an  image of the family emerges that is true to life. Johnson gives readers  an unwavering exploration of the ways that the love and knowledge family  members have of one another creates both hurt and comfort.
