Goodrich High School Theatre's LIVE, IN-PERSON Production of OUR PLACE: April 29- May 2, 2021

Goodrich High School Theatre returns to a live theatre presentation for the 2020-21 season with Terry Gabbard's highly acclaimed and produced new one-act play, "Our Place."

The unassuming location of a dock extending out onto a small lake serves as the backdrop for five totally different stories.

On a cool autumn night, Jake arrives with Holly at a secluded spot. The couple feels an immediate connection to this place as if it were put there just for them.

On another day, early in the morning, Beth has plans to spend the day with her dad at their favorite fishing place. She has high hopes for catching some sunshine, a few fish, and her dad's fading memories.

The third story involves Al, who arrives at the dock with his family and has high expectations for their family canoe trip. His wife would rather stay inside, his son has a chip on his shoulder, and his daughter is very different.

In the fourth story, Cory and Liberty have a picnic lunch out by the lake, but a realization about tuna-fish sandwiches sends a shock wave through their relationship.

Finally, Stanley escapes the hardships of his life to blow off some steam on the dock when Sidney, his little sister, arrives. All he wants is for her to go away, but she insists on staying with him, at all costs.

All five stories of this most unique one-act play allow Our Place to be seen in both comedic and dramatic light brought together in the form of a final epilogue near the end of the audience's experience at "our place."
