Join Strangemen Theatre Company this summer at Guild Hall in East Hampton for the first of two presentations of new plays, set for production off-Broadway for the company’s 2018-2019 season!
Written by Scott Aiello, with direction by Claire Karpen, and produced by Strangemen Theatre Company, BERNIE AND MIKEY’S TRIP TO THE MOON centers around the Vincolos, an Italian-American family in 1990s Chicago, and the love, laughter, trials, and tribulations that come from raising a child with a cognitive disability. For this family, life is about fighting to find the balance between responsibility, loyalty, and personal happiness…and sometimes it’s just about fighting. Throw in Elvis Presley, a baseball bat, the moon, and a giant pot of tomato sauce and you have the recipe for this new and heart-warming dark comedy.
The evening’s presentation will begin at 7pm in the John Drew Theater, to be followed by a garden reception with the star-studded cast and production team. Please refer to the differing ticket prices for access to the reading, as well as the reception.
