A time-traveling talisman and a 10-year-old boy create a theatrical tour-de-force in The Grown-Up, an impressionistic, free-associating series of narrative vignettes written by Pulitzer Prize-nominated playwright, Jordan Harrison (Marjorie Prime, Maple, and Vine). The Grown-Up is a fairytale about the elusive quality of time—a perception that intensifies with age—and about the power of imagination. Touching on stories by Hans Christian Anderson and others, Harrison interrogates the eerie yet familiar sensation of feeling like you've disappeared into a land behind a mirror; where the person staring back at you seems like your child self, but with the weight of age and personal experience beginning to cloud the image in front of you. A funny, moving, and magical comedy-drama directed by visiting guest artist, Kate Eminger.
