The next big hit from The Gallery Players is quickly approaching. Saturdays, May 12 and 19, at 8 p.m. and Sundays, May 13 and 20, at 2:30 p.m. come see The Gallery Players as they present James Sheridan’s “Relatively Close,” directed by Beth Kattelman. By inviting us into the summer home of one eccentric and quarrelsome extended family, Sheridan scrutinizes human relationships which keeps the audience laughing out loud throughout the entire production.
In “Relatively Close,” three sisters return to the house on the shores of Lake Michigan where they spent the summers of their youth. Now, the sisters are grown, their parents are gone, and the house is just sitting there. One sister wants to keep it, one sister wants to sell it, and one sister just wants everyone to get along. They each have brought a husband combining three men with very little hope of finding any common ground. And one sister has one very disgruntled teenage son in town who may be the hope for the future or the downfall of the present.
Described as “a comedic doppelganger of August: Osage County” by the Daily Herald and “filled with laughs from start to finish,” by TheathreInChicago.com, this is a performance you won’t want to miss.
