A comedy by Rex Pickett
Directed by Argo Thompson
September 8 - October 1, 2017
World premiere of a new stage adaptation of the popular book and Academy Award winning screenplay.
Opening night will be a special wine tasting with Cono Sur and Sideways author Rex Pickett.
THE STORY: A winetasting road trip to salute the final days as a bachelor careens woefully sideways as two friends hit the gas en route to mid-life crises. The comically mismatched pair, who share little more than their history and a heady blend of failed potential and fading youth, soon find themselves drowning in wine and women. Emerging from a haze of Pinot noir, wistful yearnings and trepidation about the future, the two inevitably collide with reality.
