Mildred's Umbrella Theatre Company Presents World Premiere of POLLYWOG, 7/31

Mildred's Umbrella Theatre Company proudly presents the world premiere of POLLYWOG by Keian McKee, July 31-August 16, 2014 at Studio 101, 1824 Spring Street, Houston, TX 77007. The Show will be directed by Matt Huff and will feature well-known Houston actors, James Belcher, Celeste Roberts, Courtney Lomelo, Jason Duga and Autumn Clack.

Synopsis: At sunrise, Polly wades alone into the spring waters of the Atlantic to begin her first ocean swim. In a small container secured to her body are her mother Jule's ashes. This is no contest for fame or glory. Rather, Polly is seeking a genuine conclusion to swimming lessons prematurely halted at age nine when Jule suffered a stroke and Polly's childhood effectively ended. Although physically alone on her journey, she carries within herself, and ultimately confronts, the main characters of her life: Jule, before and after her stroke; Esther and Johnny, Hollywood swim idols and Polly's imaginary helpmates in Jule's care; and her father Mort, a former sailor turned cemetery salesman.
