Grand Horizons by Bess Wohl

May 17 @ 7:30 pm - June 1 @ 9:30 pm

$18 – $25

Grand Horizons by Bess Wohl is a heartwarming and hilarious story of love and marriage set in a retirement community, where a 50-year-married couple’s decision to divorce sends shock waves through their family, leading to uproarious chaos and unexpected revelations that resonate with audiences of all ages. After a long time of playing your role, things may become automatic, erased, unrecognizable. Grand Horizons’ Nancy French seeks justice, dignity, and respect to be seen beyond a role— a woman with desires, secrets and dreams.

The play asks us to consider what happens when you step outside of your role in a family? Can you be in a family and still be yourself, or do you always have to sacrifice some part of your identity and freedom?
Grand Horizons was nominated for Best Play at the 2020 Tony Awards. This is the second regional premiere of Wohl’s that Honest Pint has produced.

Directed by Susannah Hough

Critical acclaim for Grand Horizons:

“…Grand Horizons is a sweet, sweet delight. It’s carefully made, beautifully acted, and extremely funny, while also asking a few tart questions about comedy itself.” – New York Magazine

“… a clever truth bomb of a play… a terrific comedy…I swooned for Grand Horizons, which for all its plot about a marriage’s unforeseen implosion has another matter urgently on its mind…Wohl’s play is a powerful argument for the full humanity of women in our culture – a matter that’s not as settled as we might like to think.” — The New York Times
