Sorrow and Sons

This poignant play takes place in a college dorm room during parent's weekend. The student is not doing very well in school, to the consternation of his rigid father. The real problem is that the father expects his remaining son to live up to the memory of the son who died in Vietnam. It's quite a burden.

Spittin' Image

Set in the same college dorm room as Sorrows and Sons, this play focuses on a college student who is not doing well in school and simply cannot live up to his parents' expectations that he replace the brother killed in Vietnam. One of the author's most fascinating characters, Megs, who plays an important role in Strange Snow, makes his first appearance here. Megs has not yet cauterized his pain at having lost his best buddy in Nam. He stops to see his lost friend's the kid brother and sees in him the "spittin' image" of his dead comrade. The brother is cramming for an exam, but Megs cajoles him to loosen up and both begin the painful process of dealing with their loss.

Pilgrims

This play is, like its companion pieces in Sorrows and Sons, about loss; but also about renewal. It is set in a coffee shop/pizza joint run by a middle aged man who has not quite faced up yet to the grim fact that his son was killed in Vietnam. Helping him deal with his loss is a quirky teenaged girl who works as a waitress in the shop, a would be actress who is just starting to come out of her own emotional shell.

Seats & Space
Seating options consist of carefully curated vintage couches, sofas, side chairs, and more comfort than you'll find at any other theater in the region.  All seats are general admission, come early and pick your comfy seat and enjoy a drink and concessions.

The audience space is thoughtfully arranged to make sure patrons are as comfortable in Giving Tree as they are in their own homes. Although more seats could be installed to accommodate larger audiences, Giving Tree is focused on seating quality vs. quantity, and limiting availability to place more comfortable “non-traditional” seating.
