Rolland Roebuck, owner and theater producer, introduces new theater opportunity at
Memories, "NO FLUFF THEATER". By no fluff I mean, there will be no dinner with the show, therefore none of our famous fluff. Also, these plays may have more of an "edge" but you will be made aware of the content of the show for full awareness, so you can make an informed decision whether you want to attend. Not having dinner will also make the pricing more affordable.
Our first NO FLUFF THEATER presentation will be, "The Good Father" by Christian O'Reilly. Which is for a mature audience, with some language consideration. A love story of how two people starting at the end, try to reach a new beginning.
Tim and Jane are from different sides of the class divide, but after a random meeting at a New Year's Eve party, they attempt to form a relationship against all odds. The play portrays a relationship that should not have happened and drags two people, whether they like it or not, from skepticism, to love, to grief, and finally to hope.
This play was performed by the Milwaukee Irish Arts, starring Nate Press, Becky Cofta and directed by Jim Gallagher; and I am bringing this play to Memories on Dec. 28 and 29, 2018. The cost will be $25.00, which includes the show and one of Memories homemade desserts at intermission. Doors open at 7:00 pm with the performance starting at 7:45 pm. It's a wonderful play, with great acting, does have one scene containing some language, but if you can deal with that, it is a must-see play.
