The Newton Nomadic Theater is kicking off a four week run of its newest show Colder Than Here this weekend (April 5,6) at the Sacco-Pettee mill in Upper Falls.
If you’ve never seen a production by this acclaimed local theater you don’t know what you’re missing. We feature some of the best actors you’ll see on any Boston stage in intimate, simply staged productions in all sorts of interesting non-theater spaces.
Nobody can ignore the fact that Myra is dying, but in the meantime, life goes on. There are boilers to be fixed, cats to be fed, and the perfect funeral to be planned. As mother researches burial spots and biodegradable coffins, her family is finally forced to communicate with her and each other as they face up to the future. A dark comedy about death and life going on.
We’ve assembled a fabulous cast of Newton Nomadic regulars and newcomers and recruited Nicole Galland to direct what promises to be the funniest play you will ever see about bone cancer. Noni Lewis (God of Carnage, Dracula, Molly Sweeney, All In the Timing), Matt Winberg (Dracula, Doubt, All in the Timing, Christmas Carol) Abigail Dickson (Behind the Scenes-Directing) and the NNT debut of Ellie Brelis.
Come see Colder Than Here in a mill, come see it in a library, a rug store, a living room, or a pub – but come see it.
“An offbeat comedy about cancer; in which the harrowing absurdity of ordering one’s own cardboard casket is poignantly revealed.”
“Is as funny as it is moving, as entertaining as it is thought-provoking.”
