Five Down, One Across by Michael Towers
September 30 - October 24, 2010
When Betty relocates her 85-year-old mother to her not-so-ordinary Brookline home, she agrees to tell her the truth about everything: her failed marriage, her mysterious pet, her prestigious career and her 16-year relationship with her “roommate” Sharon.
Conveniently, the matriarch catches a case of Alzheimer’s and since her arrival, communicates with little more than word clues from crossword puzzles.
A traditional ladies-only house party affectionately known as “Taco Night” sets the stage for action, and a surprise visit from Betty’s 17-year-old son raises the stakes for all of the game night contestants.
Directed by Sidney J. Friedman, with Alice Duffy, Chloe Leamon, Ellen Peterson, Jessica Webb, and Stephanie Clayman. A comedy about the perils of coming out...of the house.
