In a summer cottage on Chesapeake Bay, Gunner has hatched an unorthodox plan to secure his family's future but meets with resistance from his wife and son, who have plans of their own. As winter approaches, the three must quickly find common ground and come to an understanding before the tide goes out.
This drama hums with dark humor and powerful emotion. When the play ran Off-Broadway in 2012, The New York Times said, "...this drama brings sensitive observation and minor-key humor to painful situations that many of us will recognize from our own families...its poignant conclusion will have resonance for many in the audience."
I believe that anyone can improvise—anyone! And if you're saying, "Nuh-uh, not me!" then I must respectfully disagree. Sorry to be so blunt, but I've witnessed it time and time again. ANYONE can improvise. —Lulu French, Instructor
