Academy Award-winning actress Olympia Dukakis (Steel Magnolias, A.C.T.‘s Hecuba) and beloved veteran Bay-area actor Marco Barricelli return to A.C.T. in this deliciously dark comedy. When an embittered, self-involved bachelor arrives to care for the dying aunt he hasn’t seen since childhood, his brief visit stretches to interminable lengths. As her health improves against all odds—and against his hopes—their relationship evolves in unexpected ways. A tour de force from the creator of the runaway hit The Overcoat, Vigil offers an uncanny balance of gallows humor and grave ruminations on family, identity, and the human condition.
