Walking In Space
All happy families are alike; each unhappy family
is unhappy in its own way — Leo Tolstoy
In deference to Mr. Tolstoy – sometimes they’re both.
Theatre West presents the world premiere of Walking in Space. In 1972, in Baltimore, Maryland, there was no Betty Ford Clinic.
When the prescription drug-addicted, single mother of an upper-middle class Jewish family finally hits rock-bottom, it falls on her children to take control.
Inspired by true events, this fictionalized, autobiographical dramedy by multiple award-winning playwright Garry Michael Kluger is an affectionate portrait of four siblings who arm themselves with fierce tenacity, good humor, and their love for one another to save their mother — and themselves.
