The Great Depression is still raging in America in the winter of 1934. It is felt most strongly in a ramshackle boarding house in Duluth, Minnesota. While his wife Elizabeth continues to struggle with dementia and experiences brief bursts of clarity, proprietor Nick Laine fights to prevent the bank from seizing the property. He has been having an affair with one of the renters, Mrs. Neilsen, but is she what he truly wants?
The offspring of Nick and Elizabeth aren't without issues as well. Gene struggles with the demon of drink and has no direction in life, and Marianne is unmarried and five months along. In a plot reminiscent of Eugene O'Neill, visitors and various eccentric locals come and go, each with their own mysteries and backstories. Their secrets, which range from prison time to blackmail to morphine addiction, are steadily exposed against the evocative music of Bob Dylan.
With such an incredible tale, this show is set to please even the most discerning of show goers. You will unequivocally be blown away, as evidenced by all of its rave reviews. CIBC Theatre is the best place to see it, so make sure you block out your schedule and you will be set for the best night ever.
