A whimsically heartfelt fable about love and death, this play by Philip Dawkins follows the destinies of the Fail family in 1928 Chicago. Free-spirited Nelly, tomboy Jenny June and the responsible Gerty are the daughters of immigrant clock-makers, promising young women ready to strike out on their own. Their fates change after they meet a sweetly sincere suitor, Mortimer, and then their makers, one after the other, in a series of unfortunate events. This funny, wise play has won kudos from critics for its delightful humor and moving message. Learn More

At check-in, the Sunday matinee audience was warned about chilly temperatures in the theatre space. Yet, we found ourselves warmed by the variety of emotions portrayed in different story lines. The actors nimbly switched from character to character, and poured themselves into the scenes. Particularly enjoyed the clever use of the sound track (water and music) that added great feeling to each scene and tied them all together nicely.
