Nested
A FireWorks Festival Presentation

by Liz Best
Directed by Molly Thom
Produced by Jennifer Grose, Producer & Ramona Baillie, Associate Producer

Alumnae proudly announces the reopening of its mainstage theatre for live performance with a play to blow away the Covid blues. 

Synopsis:
It’s been a long time coming but Elaine and David have sold the family home and are moments away from becoming empty nesters. Their three children are almost settled, Grandma Rose is moving to a retirement home and they’re about to start the next chapter of their lives. But what happens when one parent is more ready to move than the other? What happens when the kids want to remain kids? And where does Grandma Rose keep disappearing to? Nested begs the questions - Do kids ever really grow up and is parenting ever really finished?

Nested is a production of Alumnae’s celebrated FireWorks Festival which has been showcasing provocative and daring new plays by women writers since 2013.

In late 19th century America, an enterprising physician takes advantage of the dawn of electricity to employ a new mechanism to ease female “hysteria.” Meanwhile, his devoted but desperately unhappy wife takes charge of her own fulfillment and awakening. This daring play explores the subjugated world of women of the time with humour, compassion and enlightenment.
