Is Marriage a Long-Running Farce?

Grand Horizons by Bess Wohl

Directors: Anne Robinson and Brett Harston

Dates: April 24 to May 12, 2024

Nancy, a woman in her 70s, is ready to make a change and divorce her husband Bill. The couple’s adult sons Ben and Brian are shell shocked by their parents’ unexpected announcement and thrust into their own identity crises.

Bursting with all the joy and pathos of everyday life, Grand Horizons is theatre at its most enjoyable and familiar. Don’t miss this hilarious and ultimately very moving portrayal of the way we all try (and sometimes fail) to live our best lives.

As the family grapples with their new reality, each must reckon with their own imperfect past and how their collective love for each other might express itself in new and unlikely forms.

Content Warning

Grand Horizons contains strong language and mature themes and theatrical haze.
