FAMILY DRAMA CONTINUES @ DREAMCATCHER REP IN SUMMIT
The Outgoing Tide WHEN: April 21- May 8, 2016 WHERE: The Oakes Center, 120 Morris Ave., Summit
Past, present and future come together for the Concannon family in The Outgoing Tide.
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."
Dreamcatcher adds special guest and access services to "The Outgoing Tide" performances:
For all performances of the play from April 29 through May 8, assistive listening equipment will be available for patrons with hearing loss.
The FM headsets amplify the onstage dialogue for audience members seated anywhere in the theatre. Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 pm and Sundays at 2 pm.
On Saturday, April 30 at 8 pm, Dreamcatcher will offer Audio Description of the performance. Audience members with vision loss will hear the physical action of the performers described throughout the show via FM headsets. Advance notice is requested for this service so that the correct number of devices can be made available.

Improv at Dreamcatcher Rep:
Multiple Personality Disorder
Multiple Personality Disorder is the improvisational comedy troupe of Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre. MPD has been performing as a group since 2002. Their unpredictable shows are always packed with laughs from start to finish.
MPD performs improv comedy sketches like those seen on the popular television show, "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" and uses audience input to shape the scenes that the actors instantly create onstage. Performers use ingredients such as everyday objects, strange maladies, and unusual circumstances to cook up unconventional mini-plays that appear and disappear before your eyes.
