Sarah Ruhl's latest hit comedy, FOR PETER PAN ON HER 70TH BIRTHDAY, opens February 14th and plays through March 10th. This is the second play of Jarrott Productions' fourth season, and it performs at the intimate Trinity Street Playhouse, located inside the First Baptist Church of Austin at 901 Trinity Street. Performances are at 7:30pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, with a 2:30pm matinee on Sundays.
When Ann thinks of her father, she immediately remembers playing Peter Pan in her hometown theater in Iowa, particularly when he used to bring her flowers after her performance. His death sparks a conversational wake that includes everything from arguments over politics to when each sibling realized that they grew up. A loving look at a family's view of death, life, and the allure of never growing up.
FOR PETER PAN ON HER 70TH BIRTHDAY is directed by Karen Jambon and features one of Austin's favorite leading ladies, Janelle Buchanan, along with local theatre veterans Mick D'Arcy, Anne Hulsman, David R.
