Fri, Feb 24, 2017, 8:00 PM
Join us as we embark on our maiden production of The Optimist, by Jason Chimonides! Ground Light Theatre is the love child of Tyler Humphries, Tiffany Faulkner, and Mike Marcou. The company was created with the intent of producing quality theatre of depth and substance, all while providing up-and-coming actors the opportunity to create meaningful relationships on and off stage.
Over the course of one tumultuous weekend, Noel returns to his hometown to confront the sudden death of his best friend, the wedding of his philandering father, and the reemergence of his one true love, Nicole. A hilarious, poignant journey punctuated by the puerile antics of Noel's fraternal twin brother, Declan, THE OPTIMIST follows three young people into a rundown motel room where they tackle unfinished romance, the imminent arrival of a rampaging patriarch, and the threat of impending adulthood.
