Pilgrim’s Progress

World Premiere


by Ensemble Member Brett Neveu

Directed by Ensemble Member Shade Murray

Featuring Ensemble Members Kirsten Fitzgerald & Michael Shannon

November 5 – December 13, 2015

Pilgrim’s Progress has ended.  Thanks for a great run!

It’s Thanksgiving Day and the McKee family is up to its eyeballs in hilarious drama. Between stirring the cranberries and debating pumpkin pie, parents Jim and Melissa relive their glory days. Meanwhile, their earth-poet Son and pregnant-teen Daughter navigate family contracts, holiday power grabs, and decades of thinly veiled deceit. For a family with such a strong appetite for tales, are their stories more important than the truth?  With homages to Albee, O’Neal, Williams and Shepard, the tension rides high and the carving knife does more than just cut the turkey.
