Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, Grown Ups is an acerbic comedy in which a middle-aged journalist has finally grown up, only to find he's trapped in a world of emotional infants.
Jake, a frustrated writer, struggles to set boundaries between his own family and his invasive parents, save a floundering marriage, and protect his daughter from an emotionally isolated childhood. In this transgenerational battle for recognition and validation, Jules Feiffer takes an unforgiving look at the maturity indicative of the adult. Painfully raw and embarrassingly honest, Grown Ups allows us to laugh with humility at the child in us all.
The play stars David Berent as Jake, Kelly Ann Moore as Louise (honored as one of TheaterMania's best performances of 2004 for The Heiress) and features Lawrence Frank as Jack, Joy Keaton as Helen, Kate Tellers as Marilyn, and Cai Tanikawa Oglesby as Edie.
The artistic team includes Nick Francone (Scenic and Lighting Design), Liam O'Brien (Costume Design), Matt Stine (Original Music and Sound Design), Jason Jamerson (Properties), and Andrea Ghersetich (Production Stage Manager).
