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

I saw that other Goldstar members gave this a low rating, but I don't know why. I go to several events in the city and found this to be quite entertaining, although I do prefer musicals. The actors were talented, it was a clever script, the Chicago references were funny ... it wasn't split your sides funny, but certainly several laugh out loud spots!! I especially loved the teenager and Marlene. It was a nice evening out ... Thanks.
Three sisters return to the family vacation home on the shore of Lake Michigan, where they spent the summers of their childhood. Now the sisters are grown, the parents are gone and the house is just sitting there. What should they do with the property? One sister wants to keep it, one sister wants to sell it and one sister just wants everyone to get along. With their respective spouses and one teenager in tow, will they even make it to the end of the week? Not likely!
