THE BODY’S MIDNIGHT

APR 18-MAY 26

A Co-Production With IAMA THEATRE COMPANY

by Tira Palmquist
directed by Jessica Kubzansky
World Premiere Production

What does it mean to get lost in America? Anne and David are set to find out as they embark on the perfect American road trip. They have a map, an impressive list of sights to see, and an itinerary that should put them in St. Paul just in time for the birth of their first grandchild. But soon their perfect plan is derailed by a troubling diagnosis and the beautiful impermanence of the world around them. As Anne and David veer off of their intended path, they are forced to grapple with the unavoidably messy and breathtaking journey of their lives.
