Luella is alone - haunted by the ghost of her son. Joshua is alone - kicked out of his house by his brother. One winter night the two people collide. Luella is looking for redemption; Joshua is looking for family. By the next morning, these two lonely souls are meshed together into an “American Family” in its truest sense. A world premiere by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright James Ijames, Abandon is sometimes violent, sometimes healing with a thin veil that separates the worlds of the living and the dead, and shame and acceptance. Opening night is set for Wednesday, May 3, at 7 p.m.
