Welcome to Homestead Crossing. Anne and Noel live in a nice house at the end of a nice street, but their desire to live comfortably has shifted from contentment to inertia. One dark and stormy night, there is a sudden tap at the window. Claudia, a young and lonely woman, seeks shelter in the home of Noel and Anne. Then comes Tobin, Claudia’s young and impulsive lover. This enigmatic young couple draws Noel and Anne out of their comfort zone and into places that may be harmful to their marriage. While the two couples wait out the storm, they begin to converse about life, love and relationships. Combining humor with a touch of mystery, Homestead Crossing is an unreal comedy that unfolds in real time. From the playwright who brought us the acclaimed production of No Wake, a world premiere.
Produced in partnership with Merrimack Repertory Theatre of Lowell, MA and Portland Stage Company of Portland, ME.
The cast includes David Adkins as Noel, Ross Cowan as Tobin, Corrina May as Anne and Lesley Shires as Claudia. (Click photo for more information on the actor.)
