Stella and Lou by Bruce Graham
Directed by Gary Thompson
Production Dates: January 19 – February 4, 2018
Lou’s South Philadelphia bar is the kind of place where the same faces sit on the same barstools seven nights a week, drowning their sorrows into countless mugs of beer. Lou is happy to run the place and enjoy time with Stella when she stops in. But Stella has decided they need to take the next step in their relationship –or she’s moving to Florida. This funny, wise, and tender story is a mid-life portrait of friendship, and maybe more. At the play’s premiere at Chicago’s Northlight Theatre in 2013, it was cheered by critics for its humor and honesty.
Run time: Act I 55 Mins – 15 Min Intermission – Act II 40 Mins
