The Willows

The Willows at Bootleg Theater is an immensely entertaining family drama. The back drop of a funeral home places the story of George’s accidental car death center stage.  It builds to fireworks during the intermissionless 90 minutes.  The spot-on cast makes the dialogue smack truthfully even when bordering on melodrama. Dementia and alcoholism are dealt with alongside a life affirming love story. There are some unexplained subplot connections that could be tightened in future productions. For now you won’t be disappointed by this rich new play.
