“This is a fun play set in what I believe to be a time in America when we were much more Innocent, the mid 1950′s. Our hope in putting this on is to allow our audience to escape from all the violence that is going on today I.E. Bombings, Shootings etc… if only for a few hours.”
A raucous comedy featuring the amnesiac Claire, her high strung husband Richard, and a mysterious savior with a limp, a lisp, and “plans.” Add in Claire’s take charge mother, her rebellious son, a foul mouthed puppet and a nervous cop and it’s no wonder Claire is confused.
Marine Captain Elaine Edwards has just returned from her latest tour in Afghanistan but this time things are different – home doesn’t feel right and nothing makes sense. After a blow-up fight with her husband propels her to skip town, she undertakes an Odyssean journey through the American landscape battling her demons, trying to find her way home.
One of my favorite ongoing events in Portland! It’s the Swing Time variety show for one night only!!
