Pins and Needles, or The Circumstance of Falling Forever on Ash Wednesday, 1988
As Billy falls forever from the attic window, Francine – his mother – copes with the loss by keeping the fridge open so long that the Coca-Cola Polar Bear moves in. And all on Ash Wednesday, when dad’s old suit is tailored to fit on son’s new, ever-falling body.
This play deals with grief and loss; it is not suitable for young people.
