Hello and hello

Hello dear SummerWorks friends and lovers.

We here at the Festival have decided to turn the blog over to the companies to tell you about their shows.

With 40 plays, it may be complicated to know which one is for you. We think that they’re all worth your time — but recognize that your busy lives only allow for 20 shows rather than 40. So, here, for your viewing pleasure, is the first show for your delicious minds to devour.


Two brothers. Dad’s funeral.
Sibling rivalry, family dysfunction, inheritance, memory, identity, truth and fiction, and history are explored in this explosive drama.

By Leah Jane Esau
Directed by Amanda Lockitch
Performed by William MacDonald and Robert Fulton
Set and Costumes: Nancy Perrin
