New Plays Festival: Timmy

by Megan Rivkin

It’s the early 2010’s, and a multigenerational family stuck at home in the suburbs is on the verge of killing each other. Alexa, the oldest daughter and an absolute nightmare, is hemorrhaging money funding her relationship with Timmy, a man she may or may not have met IRL. This show is NSFW.

Saturday, April 13 @ 8 pm
Sunday, April 14 @ 3:30 pm
Sunday, April 14 @ 8 pm

When advance registration for a performance has closed, tickets are often still available at the door. A standby list will be started in-person at the box office beginning one hour before the performance.
