The final curtain descends on To Gillian On Her 37th Birthday this Saturday at the Mesquite Arts Center. The Michael Brady play, under the direction of Brad Stephens, has moved hundreds to laughter and tears since opening on April 10th. The critically acclaimed production is the second in Mesquite Community Theatre’s highly successful 25th Anniversary Season.
DAVID is in perpetual mourning for his wife, killed two years ago in a boating tragedy on her birthday. Retiring to his summer cottage in Nantucket with his teenage daughter, David prepares to spend a weekend celebrating Gillian’s life on the anniversary of her death. Joining them is Gillian’s sister, brother-in-law and a woman from David’s past. But while his family hopes to lure him out of his grief, David has resurrected his wife in his mind, sinking ever deeper into depression and further from those who care for him.
Only three more shows remain – Thursday, April 23rd and Friday, April 24th with the final performance Saturday, April 25th. Curtain for all shows is 8 PM. Don’t miss your chance to see what The North Dallas Gazette promises “is well worth the drive to Mesquite!”
