YLSA of New York City - "The Velocity of Autumn" Theater Event
WHAT: The Velocity of Autumn, a new play by Eric Coble, directed by Molly Smith
The Velocity of Autumn swirls around Alexandra (ESTELLE PARSONS “Roseanne,” Bonnie and Clyde, August: Osage County), a 79-year-old artist in a showdown with her family over where she’ll spend her remaining years. In Alexandra’s corner are her wit, her volcanic passion and the fact that she’s barricaded herself in her Brooklyn brownstone with enough Molotov cocktails to take out the block. But her children have their own secret weapon: estranged son Chris, (STEPHEN SPINELLA Angels in America,“24”) who returns after 20 years, crawls through Alexandra’s second floor window, and becomes the family’s unlikely mediator. No sooner are the words “Hi, Mom” uttered than the emotional bombs start detonating. The Velocity of Autumn is a wickedly funny and wonderfully touching discovery of the fragility and ferocity of life.
Eric Coble is the playwright, and Molly Smith the director.
