Jimmy and Carolyn
In this hysterical, true-to-life world premiere play, Jimmy, a retired auto body repairman, and his homemaker wife Carolyn drive from Florida to idyllic Weekapaug, Rhode Island to celebrate Jimmy’s birthday at the fancy beach house of their gay son and his life partner from Costa Rica. Once the pepperoni loaf has been devoured, the Italian cookies eaten, the cigarettes smoked, and the Pinot Grigio drunk, amid the laughter, dark truths are exposed as the family struggles to make sense of their irreconcilable memories of the past, and the choices they face as they move forward.
