Next to Normal
“Next to Normal” is a play that will have you feeling every emotion possible. Dad (Vince Barras) is an architect; Mom (Kaleigh Lay) rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter (Ally Hardin) and son (Ian Bonin) are both bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family.
Yet their lives are anything but normal because their mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. “Next to Normal” takes audiences into the hearts and minds of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart. Come and experience the love and compassion of a family dealing with the many ups and downs of a mother with so much going on beneath the surface of her being.
Performance dates were February 15-24, 2019.
