HANDY DANDY: A comedy but...
by William Gibson

Directed by Teri Gibson with Michael Juzwak, Kimberley Kay and Nicola Sheara*

THEATERSOUNDS presents this heartwarming comedy/drama that has no
reindeers or faux Santas - to soften the onslaught of winter and the insanity of the holidays.


Alternately funny and touching, this masterful play follows the unlikely and slowly developing friendship between Henry Pulaski, a worldly conservative district court judge and Molly Egan, a feisty, salty-tongued radical nun in her early seventies. The first of their many confrontations occurs when she appears in his courtroom after having been arrested for picketing a local nuclear arms research laboratory. Henry, widowed and alienated from his only son, develops a grudging respect for Molly's courage and spirit as her past is tantalizingly revealed. As for their future...join us and them to discover it.
