  3. The Minutes

An evening in Big Cherry – a small town in anywhere USA – and the city council meeting unravels in real time, unmasking undercurrents that threaten to undo life as they know it … and driving the question, “How far would you go?”

The Umbrella Stage Company presents the Greater Boston premiere of Tracy Lett's Tony and Pulitzer nominated new play, THE MINUTES -- part biting comedy, part Hitchcockian mystery, and at its dark heart an unflinching allegory about small-town politics and real-world power.

This new production is helmed by Scott Edmiston, three-time Norton-winning director, hailed as “one of Boston’s finest directors” by the Boston Globe, who calls Letts' play "completely original and outrageous...both funny and dark, located somewhere between The Office and The Twilight Zone. It’s brilliant in the way that it uses comedy to dramatize some serious issues facing our country today. It takes a hard look at the growing movement to deny or rewrite some of the unpleasant truths about America's past. What are some of the myths about ourselves and our nation that we find hard to admit -- and why?”
