A powerful drama aimed at the heart of modern America
At six hundred pounds, Charlie has hidden himself away in his small apartment. Isolated and hungering for redemption, he desperately tries to reconnect with his estranged teenage daughter before it’s too late. As he eats his way into oblivion, his life intersects with a lonely nurse and a mysterious young Mormon missionary, all of whom seek grace and human connection – and discover that beauty and kindness come in unexpected forms. Marking Artistic Director Freddie Ashley’s return to the stage after a four-year absence, Actor’s Express will close the season with what is certain to be the most talked-about theatrical event of the spring.
