Come see the world premiere of Tony-nominated Cleveland playwright Eric Coble’s new play: The Family Claxon, featuring CWRU alums Hillary Wheelock (CAS ’13) and Kayla Gray (CAS ’14) and current CWRU undergrad JP Peralta (THTR/ARTH/FRCH 2019)! Students get a $3 discount. JP would like it to be known that he has no tickets left to give away so please don’t ask him for free tickets unless you want him to feel like a bad friend!
The show runs every Thu/Fri/Sat/Mon at 7:30 pm in Gordon Square Theatre from October 5 – 28 (No show October 9).
Andrew is throwing a party for old Grandad Claxon’s 150th birthday as a last-ditch effort to finally get the higher-ups to notice him. His plan for promotion might just work since Grandad is the company’s founding father. If only Andrew’s wife would stop losing jobs and their daughter would stop blogging, while neighbors desperately flood into their home because of nearby rampages and plumbing explosions. And did we mention the Guatemalan Flu that makes house pets spontaneously combust? The Family Claxon is an insane romp into the absurdity of life in our communally duct-taped home. World Premiere.
Cast: Abraham McNeil Adams, Ananias J. Dixon, Maryann Elder, Kayla Gray, Colleen Longshaw, JP Peralta, Olivia Scicolone, Hillary Wheelock, Victoria Zajac
Directed by Craig George
