PAPER DADDY

A new play by Kristine M. Holmgren

 

As the American economy implodes and our social structure dissolves into potential economic and sociological chaos, this play asks the question; what is the role of a 21st Century father?

Set in Northfield, Minnesota in the early days of the Great Recession, we follow the transformation of the impoverished and bitter Charlie Pomeroy, ex-wife of the late, great Franklin Pomeroy, former Dean of Carleton College.

Her dead husband’s ashes are in a box on her kitchen table; her daughter is coming home to participate in a memorial for a man they both hate.

A shocking announcement and a surprise mourner change everything – and Charlie learns more than she bargained for about her marriage, her future, and the ties that bind.
