Jeff Recommended!

Our second mainstage offering in the 2012-13 Season reunites the core artistic team from Rivendell’s 2009 critically acclaimed world premiere production of The Walls, playwright and Rivendell ensemble member Lisa Dillman and fellow ensemble member, director Megan Carney. Originally commissioned by the Goodman Playwrights Unit, American Wee-Pie tells the story of a middle-aged textbook editor who returns to his hometown for a funeral and finds himself on an unexpected journey of self-reinvention. A heartbreaking new comedy about recession, career second acts, and the sometimes life-altering wonder of a small good thing. American Wee-Pie features ensemble members Keith Kupferer, Jane Baxter Miller, and Mark Ulrich, with Kurt Brocker and Jennifer Pompa.
