JAM ON TOAST:
A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN NOVEMBER ON THE BANKS OF THE GREATEST OF THE GREAT LAKES

BACK TO BASICS
STRAIGHT TO GREAT LAKES TIX!
VIDEO: DENNIS & MIKE LAUNCH THE FEST!

running time: 75 minutes

A New York Times Critic’s Pick!  “Spectacularly inventive! Ms. Benson, the playwright, is fearless and remarkably assured in this dizzyingly entertaining work, which the program describes as her first full production. And the direction of Ms. Evans unfurls it on the Dixon Place stage with wit and verve, conjuring the story — the preparation and serving of a gigantic family dinner — without so much as a salad plate in sight.”

A Theasy Best Bet: Unique Theatrical Experience!

“Something really special” says nytheatre now!

“Kate is one of the most rigorous writers I have ever worked with. I love the way she thinks about language – her characters are so familiar but whey you look at the text on the page its very surprising. Every time I’m listening to the play I hear these small new details in the particular words that people do and don’t use in the play.

An example — one day in rehearsal, Kate said – “Yeah, I don’t think we need the ‘L’ at the end of that word – just say the word without the ‘L’ at the end.” And she was TOTALLY RIGHT. That regular old word sounds amazing and totally right without the ‘L’ at the end! Who knew? Kate Benson knew.” — director Lee Sunday Evans
