Pegasus Theater Company presents Kimberly Akimbo, a dark comedy written by the Pulitzer-Prize-Winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, and directed by Buzz Bense and John Rowan. The play opens May 24 and runs through June 16 at the Rio Nido Lodge.
Meet the Levaco family. There’s Mom, hugely pregnant and a hypochondriac, played by Mo McElroy. Dad, played by Mark Gregory, is an unreliable alcoholic. Their 16-year-old daughter Kimberly, played by Jana Molina, has a rare genetic disease that causes her to age at four times the normal rate. Jeff, played by Sabrina Blais, is Kimberly’s new, geeky (boy) friend. And then there’s Mom’s sister, an unrehabilitated ex-con and scam artist, played by Athena Gundlach.
When the Levaco family flees Secaucus under highly dubious circumstances to a small town in New Jersey, Kimberly is forced to re-evaluate her family, her life and her own mortality, and confront the possibility of first love. Named the comedy of the year in 2003 by the New York Times, Kimberly Akimbo is hilarious and heart-breaking and puts the FUN in dysfunctional.
