Lou: late 50’s to late 60’s – Philadelphia born and bred, bar owner.
Stella: early to mid-50’s, nurse, frequents Lou’s bar.
Donnie: late 20’s to mid 30’s, Philadelphia born and bred. Hangs out at the bar, and is engaged to be married. Donnie is a little overweight (it’s referenced by the characters on several occasions).
On a quiet night at Lou’s Bar, two kindred spirits seek solace as they navigate changing times and relationships past. From the author of The Outgoing Tide comes an intimate exploration of friendship, forgiveness, and the longing for companionship that grows with the passage of time.
“STELLA AND LOU is a play about late-in-life loneliness (and depression), themes that are not often explored in the theater, for all of their ubiquity…Refreshing…Potentially devastating, mostly because it feels so very familiar.” —Chicago Tribune. “In this and his other plays, Bruce Graham demonstrates a rare talent for writing older than his own experience.” —WindyCityTimes.com.
