POLLYWOG Makes World Premiere at Mildred's Umbrella Tonight

Mildred's Umbrella Theatre Company presents the world premiere of POLLYWOG by Keian McKee, tonight, July 31-August 16, 2014 at Studio 101, 1824 Spring Street, Houston, TX 77007.

Directed by Atlanta-based Matt Huff, the play will feature several favorites of Houston theatre, including James Belcher, Celeste Roberts, Courtney Lomelo, Jason Duga and Autumn Clack.

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.
