Fairfield Footlighters present Over the River and Through the Woods
A Comedy by Joe Dipietro Directed by Brandon Burtis
Nick is a single, Italian-American guy living in New Jersey. He’s devoted to his family; in fact, he still sees his grandparents every week for dinner. But Nick’s lofty ambitions soon see him land a job on the other side of the country and upon this revelation, his grandparents begin a series of hysterical schemes to try and keep him in the neighborhood. An Off-Broadway sensation, OVER THE RIVER is a hilarious comedy about the shift in priorities over the generations, with family and home at its core.
