37 Postcards, by Michael McKeever

We invite you to our June Playreading - „37 Postcards”. The reading will be hosted by Eliane Baumann. Come and read this wacky play with us!

After eight years of traveling abroad, Avery Sutton is coming home to the warmth and comfort of his family. Unfortunately, things aren't quite as comfortable as Avery remembers. For starters, the house, poised on the edge of a sink hole, sits at a distinct angle. The dog hasn't been fed in five years. And Aunt Ester is running a profitable phone-sex operation out of the kitchen. Oddly enough, Mom and Dad seem happily oblivious to all of this, as well as the fact that Avery's 97-year-old Grandmother is still alive and living in their home. 37 Postcards shows that you can, in fact, go home again. You just never know what you're going to find.

Characters:
Avery Sutton, 31, bright, likable, perhaps a little nerdy
Evelyn Sutton, 50's, lovely and gracious, somewhat oblivious
Stanford P. Sutton, 50's, warm and giving, somewhat oblivious
Aunt Ester, 40's, the ultimate homemaker, sweet, daft
Gillian Moore, 20's, Avery's fiancée, beautiful, but with an edge
Nana, 97-years-old, half deaf, half blind and foul-mouthed
