Failure: A Love Story

May 09, 2019 - May 18, 2019

Grossmont College Stagehouse Theatre, Bldg. 21

Alexis Popko,

Grossmont Theatre Arts presents "Failure: A Love Story" by Philip Dawkins and directed by Brian Rickel at 7:30 p.m. May 9-11 and 2 p.m. May 11 and 18 at the Stagehouse Theatre.

It is 1928 and the jazz era is in full swing while life in Chicago is roaring.  By the end of the year, all three Fail sisters will meet their demise.  In reverse order of age Nelly Fail, Jenny June Fail and Gertie Fail will die of a blunt object to the head, a disappearance and finally…consumption.  Living out their daily lives above the family clock shop on the Chicago River, they meet Mortimer Mortimer, who will fall madly in love with all three sisters.  Chasing time toward the inevitable, the power of love wins out over success and failure in this magic fable filled with whimsy, music and an irreverent chorus sure to ignite the heart and the imagination.

Tickets are $10, $12 and $15 and can be purchased online  or by calling (619) 644-7234 or going to the box office between 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday-Thursday and one hour prior to all performances.
