PCT To Present "Over the River"

pct-logoPortage Community Theatre (PCT) will present Joe DiPietro’s off-Broadway hit, Over the River and through the Woods, a touching yet hilarious comedy, June 8-23, 2012 at the Portage Yacht Club, 1370 State Hwy 249, Portage, IN. Call the Portage Community Theatre at 219-759-1408 for more information.

A wonderful family comedy, Over the River… is a play about real people. Nick is a young, single Italian-American man who dutifully has dinner with his grandparents every Sunday. He struggles to find the right moment to announce a great career move to his grandparents. It is not an easy choice for Nick, whose entire life has been spent in the bosom of this family. His grandparents on both sides have been lifelong friends and neighbors for whom Sunday dinner is a sacred ritual spent in the house of Aida and Frank, with grandparents Emma and Nunzio as guests. When Nick summons up the courage to tell his family that the new position is in Seattle, across the country from this ancestral home, the stage is set for their ingenious counter plan in the form of an appetizing dinner guest, Caitlin O’Hare. The tug between new frontiers and traditional roles plays itself out against the background of love, laughter and lasagna.
