DON’T WAIT FOR THE MARLBORO MAN is the US Premiere of a play written by OLIVIER GAROFALO presented by the award-winning Upstream Theater directed by Philip Boehm and featuring a creative team of local professional artists. 

Two very different people meet in a hospital. Sarah has just received news of her partner’s motorcycle accident and rushed out of her office, cell phone in hand. Word has also reached Pedro, the hospitalized man’s good-natured motorcycle buddy. Their encounter reveals a collision of lifestyles and values that touches on larger issues of risk and security, individual freedom, and social responsibility—all with vivid dialogue in an intriguingly theatrical frame.

April 12-14, 18-21, 25-28

All shows at 8:00 PM
except Sundays April 14 at 7:00 PM, April 21 & 28 at 2:00 PM
