Life celebrated in ‘After Hours”
SACRAMENTO — “After Hours” is an original work by local playwright E.M. Hodge. It will be presented by EMH Productions at The Geery Theatre, Nov. 22 through Dec, 15.
Welcome to the tavern After Hours: A place to find a little comfort, a little solace, a little peace. Strangers brought together by relatives with cancer spend a momentous evening together where one will lose a loved one, one celebrates the loss of a loved one, one gets to take a loved one home and one leads them all through their grief or happiness … but she’s the one who needs their love and guidance the most.
This play is a real-life drama, acceptable for most ages (children not encouraged). Those who have had dealt with cancer or suicide will appreciate it most. The cast includes Atim Udoffia, Graham Drake-Maurer, Deborah Shalhoub, Chas Weis, Denise Mayberry and Ethan Ireland.
