Frank Theater Production - Maple & Vine

Frank Theater's fall production is Maple & Vine. This specific day and time is the pay-what-you-can performance, followed by a post performance audience discussion.
Here is more information about the show from the Frank theater website:
Who hasn’t yearned for the ”good old days,” longed for a simpler lifestyle? In Jordan Harrison’s MAPLE AND VINE, a contemporary, professional couple decides to abandon their Manhattan lifestyle, opting for a simpler existence right out the 1950s. They join a cult-like group of people who have recreated 1955’s Eisenhower America somewhere in the Midwest, the SDO-- the Society of Dynamic Obsolescence. With a Committee on Authentication to ensure that standards of the time are observed, they confront a whole new set of questions. Can a former high-powered publisher find fulfillment in making crab puffs? How does an interracial couple fit into a neighborhood where people are instructed to uphold the appropriate degree of racism of the period? A gay couple meets clandestinely, but where is their place in this constructed world? And what did we do before we had sushi, hummus, focaccia or “chipotle anything"?

Frank Theater is a bit like pure concentrated cranberry juice--high-quality, powerful, and bursting with stimulation that makes you know you're alive.

    Good show! After show directors talk was interesting/informative and glad I stayed. 'Old Arizona' is a nice venue!

    I received a flier in the mail today about this production. Parking on Sunday will be available in the HCMC clinic lot across the street from the theater. Transit is also an option, route 18 is the Nicollet Ave bus.
