Morning After Grace

Sept 29 - Dec 17
Michigan native playwright Carey Crim's hilariously touching story centers on Angus and Abigail who meet at a funeral and are surprised to wake up together after a wine-fueled night. While Abigail may be ready to take a chance on love, Angus still has issues to work through. When Angus's neighbor Ollie, a former baseball player with secrets of his own, shows up using a walker, confusion and chaos ensue. Can these three find a way to connect with their pasts in order to construct a brighter future?
