Fall 2017

Kimberly Akimbo
by David Lindsay-Abaire
Directed by Professor Gavin Hawk

November 8, 9, 10 @ 8 p.m.
November 11 @ 2 p.m.

Set in the wilds of suburban New Jersey, KIMBERLY AKIMBO is a hilarious and heartrending play about a teenager with a rare condition causing her body to age faster than it should. When she and her family flee Secaucus under dubious circumstances, Kimberly is forced to reevaluate her life while contending with a hypochondriac mother, a rarely sober father, a scam-artist aunt, her own mortality and, most terrifying of all, the possibility of first love.
