Opening Friday, Sept. 8: Years to the Day

We are excited to present the regional premiere of Allen Barton’s Years to the Day, featuring David Hammons as Jeff, and Adam Remsen as Dan!

Years to the Day will run September 8-29 (note that we are closing on a Friday, due to the unusual restrictions of the performance space) in the temporary Quark Theatre and Gallery space at 7 N. Main, downtown Memphis. This space has been generously provided by the Downtown Memphis Commission. During the day, the space will serve as a gallery for photography by a different local photographer each week in September.

The story: Two old friends who haven’t seen each other in several years meet in a coffee shop to catch up. Soon, as one surprise after another is revealed, the different paths they have chosen–and some that have been thrust upon them–lead them to question the strength of their friendship. In a play that is by turns savagely comic and gently nostalgic, Allen Barton’s writing has been compared to that of George Bernard Shaw, David Mamet, Edward Albee, and Brett Easton Ellis.

Friday and Saturday shows are at 8:00 p.m., Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m.

Warning: This play contains very strong language. Not suitable for children.
