"Mom & Pop" presented by Raconteur Theatre

Hi everybody!

This Thursday Raconteur Theatre Company opens Mom and Pop by Jill's
fellow teacher at Olentangy High School, Sarah Tobin. Jill directed
this piece and we would love to have you all come out to see our hard
work come together-- we built a hardware store in the theatre for this
one! We still have green in our finger nails from sponge painting.
It's at Columbus Dance Theatre, right at the edge of Olde Towne East,
so come support an OTE business (Raconteur Theatre) at a Main Street

Hope to see you all soon!
Andrew & Jill
410 S. Ohio Ave.

Play Synopsis
In 1958, Ed (Sam Blythe) accepted the responsibility of taking over
the family hardware store despite his dreams, which would have
otherwise lead him to Memphis. Now he has passed the burden of choice
to his children—should the three take over the stores or sell them?
Gail (Danielle Filas) is determined to sell them, but Luke (JT Walker)
is aggressively advocating that the stores stay in the family. This
leaves Eda (Molly St. Cyr-Reid) stuck in the middle. Meanwhile, Ed is
nowhere to be found to help guide them in their choice. Despite their
decision, they are all forced to face one fact: mom and pop stores are
a dying breed, and they even find themselves choosing big business
over the little guy for convenience.

Mom and Pop runs December 4-20 at Columbus Dance Theatre (592 E. Main
St.). Shows are Thursdays-Saturdays at 8pm and on Sundays at 2pm.
Tickets are $10-15 at the door or can be purchased for $12 online at
