Capital Repertory Theatre in Albany, New York is currently presenting the world premiere of “Red Maple.” The play was written by Capital Region veteran actor-writer, David Bunce and was the runaway hit of the 2016 NEXT ACT! New Play Summit.
In this comedy set in the suburbs of Albany, everyone wants to know, “What’s the matter with Robert?” Since becoming an empty-nester, the usually solid and dependable professor seems to be falling apart — just like the old red maple tree in the back yard.
When friends get together for a cheer-him-up dinner, Robert announces he’s had an epiphany that will rock the world of the stalwart suburban gang around the table. Things get shaken and stirred as the cocktails and confessions flow, building to a hilarious crescendo when an unexpected guest shows up begging another question, “Guess who’s coming to dinner?”
TheRep’s production of “Red Maple” is directed by Margaret E. Hall who joined us along with playwright, David Bunce.
