About the Show Less...

Despair hits the town of Gompers hard until some rather strange occurances bring a little hope. Read More >

The town of Gompers is not a fun place to be. With a shut-down steel mill, buildings in disrepair and a population with short on faith, despair is settling in. Just when it seems hope is gone forever a golden greyhound materializes beneath a tree, a blue Messiah makes an appearance strolling along the river and a gambling boat is headed their way…

A cast of ten actors performs Adam Rapp’s new play, which manages to blend comedy, sensitivity and bold lyricism.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
