Meet the “20th Century Blues” Cast
The Acting Company is proud to present this brilliant work by Susan Miller. Directed by Lisa Buschmann, the play is a poignant, laugh-out-loud social commentary on the process of aging in America.
Four women bond and become one another’s timetable of history. Through the vagaries of love, careers, children, lost causes and tragedy, the women reunite once a year for a photo shoot, chronicling their changing (and aging) selves. But, when these private photographs have the potential to become part of a
public exhibit, mutiny erupts and relationships are tested. The images unearth secrets and force the women to question who they are, what they’ve become, and how they’ll navigate whatever lies ahead.
