Peggy’s usual lunch date (and usual lunch drink) with her middle aged children turns from routine conversation to life-changing revelation. Peggy, alternately sweet and acerbic, skillfully maneuvers to keep control, navigating secret lives and big lies, on a day that turns out to be anything but normal. Her two children must come to grips with the fact that parents, at any age, have lives which may be very independent of their children’s.
Featuring Catherine Babbitt, Kathy Couser, Sarah Fisch, and Andrew Thornton.
“[FOUR PLACES] deals with the emotional devastation of a modern family, and it is Johnson’s acute, stinging humor that ultimately makes the witnessed agony such an enjoyable theatrical experience.” – CHICAGO FREE PRESS
