Catch as Catch Can

Long-time neighbors Theresa Phelan and Roberta Lavecchia enjoy sharing a plate of rainbow cookies and piles of family gossip. Theresa’s son Tim, the family golden boy, is back in town and newly engaged to a Korean-American woman. Roberta’s son, Robbie, lives at home and is smarting from a divorce. Her daughter, Daniela, is waiting for her boyfriend to propose. This is what the mothers believe, because these are the roles and tropes they recognize. They are almost entirely wrong.
Two blue collar New England families grapple with a spiraling crisis that threatens not just their relationships, but their very identities. Three actors take on the six roles, crossing both generation and gender, upending the kitchen sink drama in a theatrical tour-de-force.
