A nursing home in northern Idaho is shutting down, making the futures of the longtime employees and three remaining patients uncertain. Even worse, Gerald, a 91-year-old patient suffering from Alzheimer's, has wandered off. The search for Gerald takes place in the midst of a record-breaking blizzard, but that's not the only crisis the staff is dealing with. This Midwest premiere by award-winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter and director Joanie Schultz -- the same team behind last season's The Whale -- is an emotional and funny look at life with plenty of unexpected twists. Learn More

We went to this show because my lucky numbers are 11:11 (as in the digital clock display). The play was funny after they 4 members were on their "trip." The serious section at the end of the play was very over acted and a bit confusing. Several of the characters had major flaws which were not fully developed. We enjoyed the night out.

Forced, for the first time, to make decisions without the guidance of their parents and elders, the counselors find themselves naked without their usual comforts, and afraid of the unkown. Inspired by the experiences of the playwrights and ensemble, and the evolving beliefs of their peers, 11:11 asks an age-old question of a new generation: why are we willing to fight for something we cannot see or define? And how will the answer to that question affect our country as this new generation matures into becoming its new leaders?
