Homo Promos presented this in 1994, one of our most ambitious productions with a real solid set and a cast of nine, including four marvellous actors over 70 - rare as pearls in the world of Fringe Theatre. It is set on the back porch of a mid-Western house with a swing in the back garden. Joe is returning to his parents, on the night of a spectacular meteor shower. One by one his parents, his sister, his nephew appear in the back garden. His father Arthur talks about his old school teacher, who duly appears though she must be 120 years old, and then his lover Ira appears who's meant to be in New York. Finally, an elderly figure in a bathrobe, whom Arthur remembers seeing land a plane in his field in 1928... The play ends in a waltz to the music of time under the fireworks of the meteor shower â The Tears of St Lawrence. An infinitely wise, profoundly humanistic play, moving and beautiful. The author will be participating from New York.Author Timothy Mason.
