While his wife and child wait for him in Yemen, an outdated and fragile satellite phone is his only connection to all he truly values. Abdi and his fellow pirates hit the high seas and capture a French oil tanker, demanding a hefty ransom.

Gadfly Theatre Productions presents "Girl Gumshoe and Detective Dad"

10/17/2014 (All day) - 10/26/2014 (All day)

Gina views moving day as a flag on the shores of maturity and independence. Too bad her father, Troy, makes immaturity and dependence so exciting. While Gina's mother Irene and girlfriend Sarita do the bulk of the work, Troy and Gina indulge in one last round of Girl Gumshoe and Detective Dad, a game from Gina's childhood. But when Detective Dad thinks he's uncovered a murder, the game takes a turn that threatens relationships, living arrangements, and sanity and forces Gina to choose between security and adventure, past and future. Girl Gumshoe and Detective Dad is a comedy that proves it's never too late to grow up--or to avoid growing up at all costs.

Bette and Boo never should have gotten married. Their son Matt narrates scenes of their bewildered attempts to provide a semblance of hearth and home — all the while undermined by their own families, bereaved by miscarriages and alcoholism, and utterly mystified by their priest.  A very black comedy, and hailed as the best play by one of theatre’s leading satirists. “… demented and compassionate, sad and hysterical.” USA TODAY
