The Battles of Richmond Hill
by Penny Jackson, directed by Kathy Gail MacGowan
The Battles Of Richmond Hill deals with the struggles of a lonely widow, Sheila, who has begun to drink too much at her local beloved Irish pub. She is having difficultly living on her own, and her grandson has come into the pub on this snowy night, to take her for a "sleepover visit" at an assisted living residence against her will. I think this play is so important because it focuses on the very difficult time when a parent must face their loss of independence and agree to move on to a more dependent lifestyle, in a new and strange environment without family.
Rehearsals have been a whirlwind of collaboration, laughs, and revelation.
I love the show because it has tenderness, humor, as well as moments of deep sorrow and loss. The evening is a real rollercoaster ride of surprises!
Let the battles begin!
