Part of the 38th Humana Festival of New American Plays, The Grown-Up, by Jordan Harrison and directed by Ken Rus Schmoll, will be presented in the Bingham Theatre.
In The Grown-Up, Kai is a 10-year-old boy sitting at his grandfather’s feet, listening to a story. Or else he’s a young television writer weathering the humiliations of the Hollywood rat race. Or else he’s a salty old man in a wheelchair, receiving an award for “not being dead yet.” Has Kai run afoul of some powerful magic, or is he just living an ordinary, too-quick human life? A time-bending, sad, funny adventure about how to survive growing up.
The Grown-Up was developed with the support of Clubbed Thumb.
