Minor Fantastical Kingdoms
By Michael Gotch
Directed by Mark Lamos
Thompson Theater
Nick and his wife Sam have grown weary of the political, economic and personal chaos of the world and escape to their new off-the-grid tiny house, nestled in a forest of giant sequoias. But their piece of paradise is soon sullied when a mysterious survivalist, two wacky Renaissance Faire devotees, an exuberant biologist, and Sam’s straight-talking mother join them in the woods for a Fourth of July housewarming. Recriminations and reconciliations fly alongside the fireworks in this charmingly funny and affecting look at the challenges of being human.

This production contains a tiny bit of adult language and situations and runs approximately two hours, including one fifteen-minute intermission.
