Join Freefall Stage for a production of Bruce Graham’s touching, gently humorous study of a precocious teenager’s “coming of age” story.
Directed by Deanne Farinha EldridgeIn, Moon Over the Brewery is the story of Miriam Lipsky, an unmarried waitress living with her thirteen-year-old daughter, Amanda.
Her painting seems to be what really matters to her, and good subjects are scarce in the drab Pennsylvania coal town where they live. Miriam proceeds to don a miner’s lamp and paint at night, when moonlight softens and transforms the stark landscape.
Miriam is also desirous of male companionship, a need which her daughter has discouraged by driving away endless suitors with her barbed comments. Amanda, compensating for the lack of a father, creates an imaginary friend, Randolph. Matters come to a head when Miriam brings home Warren Zimmerman, a somewhat paunchy mailman,who at first appears to be a perfect target for Amanda and Randolph’s caustic remarks and demeaning intelligence tests.
