Past Time

Chris is desperate. His girlfriend is leaving him because he’s just too immature. His plan to get her back? He convinces his grandfather James to go out with her playing the role of “Chris.” The new “Chris” will say all of the right things that will make her fall back in love with him. This is all a bit confusing for James‘ candle-obsessed wife Delilah and his best friend Lou, who runs a mall kiosk that sells painted plastic unicorns. Soon everyone is playing each others’ characters as they struggle to rekindle their relationships and remember who they are. Poignant and funny, this play reminds us to enjoy life’s every moment.
