Dublin, Ohio – Evolution Theatre Company announces the third production of our 2021 Season with the award-winning comedy SONS & LOVERS, written by Donna Hoke and directed by David Allen Vargo, presented at the Abbey Theater of Dublin, 5600 Post Road, Dublin, OH 43017.
The winner of the 2018 Emanuel Fried Award for Outstanding New Play, SONS & LOVERS by Donna Hoke is an engaging comedy about Ellen, a middle-aged woman at a crossroads in her life. Ellen knows the score – her son is gay, and her husband is cheating – but it’s so much easier to pretend than to talk about it. It takes fantasy, farce, and one fabulous makeover before the truth flies free, mother and son discover just how much they have in common, and Ellen realizes the reality she’s been avoiding most is her own.
SONS & LOVERS is presented by special arrangement with Stage Rights (www.stagerights.com)
SONS & LOVERS features Amy Anderson, Brad Johnson, Dan Kuhlman, and Todd Taylor.
