an interpreted performance of

written by Lisa Kron
performed by Allison Mickelson


DATE & TIME: Friday, February 2, 2018 at 7:30 pm

LOCATION: 1515 SW Morrison, Portland OR
Alder stage (lower level)

TICKETS: best to call and request interpreted section  503-242-0080

INTERPRETER: Dot Hearn




Summary:
Lisa invites you on the Kron family “vacation” to Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio. You see, in spite of near-blindness, diabetes and a heart condition, Lisa’s 75-year-old father Walter insists on yearly trips to the world capital of roller coasters. But this isn’t the only journey they take together. Lisa also accompanies him to Auschwitz, where his parents were killed, and where she comes to understand more clearly the joys and sorrows of her father’s heart. A complex and searingly funny meditation on how human beings make sense of tragedy, grief, and everyday life.

Wonderfully evocative and often seriously funny, [Kron] sets off emotional vibrations that just won’t stop.“ –Ben Brantley, New York Times

One of the most tender and discerning family tragicomedies in recent memory.” –Linda Winer, New York Newsday
