Sooner/Later, written by Allyson Currin and directed by Gregg Henry, catapults the audience into the life of a single, working, middle aged mother Nora (Erica Chamblee), her charming, possessive, teen-aged daughter, Lexie (Cristina M. Ibarra), and a sarcastic and dubious suitor-turned-companion, Griff (Tony K. Nam). The performance is a comedy about love and loss, and draws us into complicated relationships that are timelessly relevant as they touch the fears, desires, and expectations that any American woman-young or seasoned, may experience in her lifetime.

Mosaic Theater Company of DC presents the DC premiere of Sooner/Later, a romantic comedy about life and love and loss. Written by local DC playwright, Allyson Currin, Sooner/Later is part of Locally Grown Mosaic, an in-house program to nurture local, DC artists through commissions, new play development, and full productions. Originally produced at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park in 2018, the play has received a first-ever "completion commission" from Mosaic to continue its refinement as the first official production of the Trish Vradenburg Play Commission. Now set in DC, the play is underwritten by the Vradenburg Foundation's George Vradenburg in memory of his wife, playwright and screenwriter, Trish Vradenburg. The commission ensures that women's voices will be at the forefront of Mosaic's seasonal offerings and will continue to distinguish Washington DC as a home for innovative and groundbreaking theater.

by A.A. Cristi - Mar 29, 2019

From Founding Artistic Director, Ari Roth: 'The eight amazing plays in Mosaic's 5th Anniversary Season offer up Stages of Awakening-urgent, exhilarating and humble-that hurtle our characters, and by extension, us, forward to new levels of awareness, puncturing bubbles of pretension along the way. To be 'woke' is to be no longer in the dark about what's happening around us; about the systems of oppression and persistence of racism that permeate daily life. But it can be tricky terrain, these states of 'wokeness,' leading to pats-on-the-back of self- congratulations and new forms of denial. Our extraordinary playwrights are hip to our follies and foibles, just as they're poised to wake us up to the realities of our moment and the relevance of history still knocking on our door.

Carol Burnett, Marilu Henner Set for SURVIVING GRACE in LA This September
by Nicole Rosky - Aug 21, 2013

This September, a cast of Hollywood stars will take the stage for special ensemble readings of Act 1 of Surviving Grace, an original play penned by comedy writer Trish Vradenburg ('Designing Women,' 'Family Ties,' 'Kate and Allie'), co-founder of USAgainstAlzheimer's a national advocacy organization committed to stopping Alzheimer's by 2020. Based on Trish's experience as a caregiver to her mother who died of Alzheimer's in 1992, Surviving Grace is a brutally honest, irreverent and moving story laced with humor that sheds light on the emotional ups and downs that 15.4 million Alzheimer's caregivers go through each day in the U.S. The play comes to California after being produced at The Kennedy Center, off-Broadway, cross-country and in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The first star-studded reading was at The Phillips Collection in Washington, DC last fall.
