Plays

  • A Jukebox for the Algonquin
    The Algonquin Room at Placid Pines Senior Living Facility is not exactly party central. Some residents aim to change that, in ways that some might consider, unconventional.

    I was lucky enough to attend the reading at The Purple Rose Theatre, and mark my words - this play is a diamond waiting to be mined. Poignant, provocative, funny and timely - honest, fully-drawn characterizations plus dream roles for actors. Read it and you'll see for yourself. I've followed Carey Crim's work for awhile (Morning After Grace, Wake) and I truly think this is among her best in a body of already outstanding work.
