Now Then Again
By Penny Penniston
Directed by Ryan Crowder
September 18 - October 12, 2014
Featuring Michael Ferstenfeld, Nathan Jerkins, Garry Peters, Dennis Pratt, Megan Rabuse, Matt Worthington
The ordinary lives of Henry and Ginny, two physicists working at Chicago's world renowned Fermilab, receive a cosmic (or perhaps quantum) shake-up when the hands of destiny move forward and backward in time to weave their seemingly incompatible lives together. Sweet, smart and disarmingly funny, Now Then Again is a love story inspired by theories from quantum mechanics. Winner of Chicago's prestigious "Jeff Award" for Best New Play, it now receives its Texas premiere.
