Restless Artists’ Theatre in Sparks will present “The Velocity of Autumn” by Eric Coble beginning Dec. 2 at their new location at 295 20th Street.
This two person play swirls around Alexandra, an 80-year old artist in a showdown with her family over where she’ll spend her remaining years. In Alexandra’s corner are her wit, her volcanic passion, and the fact that she’s barricaded herself in her Brooklyn brownstone with enough Molotov cocktails to take out the block. But her children have their own secret weapon: estranged son Chris, who returns after twenty years, crawls through Alexandra’s second-floor window and becomes the family’s mediator.
The Velocity of Autumn is a wickedly funny and wonderfully touching discovery of the fragility and ferocity of life. This production is directed by Bob Ives.
Performance dates are: Dec. 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, 15, 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m., and Dec. 4, 11 and 18 at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $15 for General Admission, $12 for Students/Seniors/Military, and $20 at the door. Tickets are available at brownpapertickets.com or call 775-525-3074. Information is also available at www.restlessartiststheatre.org.
