'Grieving For Geneiveve' at the Workshop Theatre
Grieving For Geneiveve - a comedy about a dysfunctional family dealing with a wedding - will be presented as part of the Sixth Midtown International Theatre Festival.
Written by Kathleen Warnock and directed by Peter Bloch, Grieving For Geneiveve will play at the WorkShop Theatre beginning the 22 Jul for six performances only.
The production is funded with some of the authorï¿½s winnings from the television show ï¿½Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?ï¿½ (Kathleen Warnock won $50,000 before being stumped by a question about Uranus. The planet.)
Grieving For Geneiveve tells the story of the Peck sisters and their mother who gather for rock and roller sister Delilah's wedding. It's her third try but it may not be the charm. Oldest sister, Danni, the one who lives in New York (and doesn't talk about her personal life) arrives unexpectedly. She's not in the wedding, but youngest sister Angel, a nun, is. Their mother Genevieve, a retired nurse and full-time guilt merchant, wants all her girls to pull together and help each other out with the wedding. Suddenly they have to, but for a completely different reason.
The cast of Grieving For Geneiveve features: Jo Anne Bonn, Derin Altay, Karen Stanion and Susan Barnes Walker.
