St. Paul’s Church
20 pesos donation
Molly and Ray unexpectedly meet 25 years after a one-afternoon adolescent fling. Their encounter reveals two vastly different paths taken and two lonely souls attempting to reclaim a moment of possibility when they were young and perhaps at their very best. Molly will be read by Gina Giampaoli and Ray by B. C. May. Lola Smith directs.
The critics were enchanted: “Bittersweet and quietly wonderful,” “a funny, poignant, heartbreaking play about second chances and redemption,” “a sublime drama,” “a piercing, compassionate portrait of two damaged people briefly reaching out to each other.”
Curtain time is 7:30pm, but the play starts earlier if the house is full. A 20 pesos donation is requested at the door.
