How did you become who you are today, and what dreams have you let go? In an airport, where everyone is busy going somewhere, The Delays focuses on a group going nowhere. Taking place around the new year, and traveling back ten years, and then another ten years, the past lives of these characters slowly reveal themselves, while asking bigger questions.Written by local playwright, Sara Jean Accuardi, following tradition of our winter commissioned works.

"Messy and real, Accuardi treats all her characters with the respect they deserve without being afraid to let them be hurt and hurt each other."
Nicholas Vasilios Pappas

"...Not only is Accuardi memorable... but Accuardi's talent and work ethic also made her stand out."
Kate Loftesness, The Oregonian
