Tell Me I’m Not Crazy

July 24 - August 3 | Nikos Stage
2019 Season

By Sharyn Rothstein
Directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel
With Mark BlumMark Feuerstein, Jane Kaczmarek, Nicole Villamil

Forced into retirement and unsettled by the changing world around him, Sol Koening (Mark Blum) buys himself a gun—and his family is up in arms. His wife Diana (Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominee Jane Kaczmarek) thought they’d spend more time together and with the grandkids, but Sol’s new hobby puts a bullet in that plan. Meanwhile, their son Nate (Mark Feuerstein) is trying to be a good stay-at-home dad while his jet-setting wife Alisa (Nicole Villamil) climbs the corporate ladder, and school is calling with concerns about their kid. Directed by Tony Award nominee Moritz von Stuelpnagel, Sharyn Rothstein’s world premiere comedy asks how one small firearm redefines a family and how two generations confront what it means to succeed and to sacrifice in America today.

The “wondrous Jane Kaczmarek . . . traverses a wide emotional range . . . creating a portrait of a woman who is shaken by the upheaval in her world but is also thoroughly equipped to restore order to it.”

-Don Aucoin, The Boston Globe
