Sept. 19-Oct. 20: The Velocity of Autumn
Academy Award winner Estelle Parsons stars in The Velocity of Autumn, a new two-character play by Eric Coble. Alexandra, is a 79-year-old woman living alone in her Brooklyn brownstone with her fleeting memories, and enough explosives to take down the block. As she stubbornly clings to her apartment, her favorite tree and her homemade incendiary devices, Alexandra must come to terms with her aging mind and body. Directed by Molly Smith, the play runs through October 20 at Arena Stage in Southwest.
