Synopsis: It's raining. Gabriel York is awaiting the arrival of his grown son whom he hasn't seen since he was seven. "I know what he wants. He wants what all young men want from their fathers. He wants to know who he is. Where he comes from. Where he belongs. And for the life of me I don't know what to tell him." That's the beginning of this compelling family saga that takes us back and forth in time from one generation to another, from 1959 to 2039, from London to Australia. With four generations of fathers and sons, their mothers, lovers and wives, the play is epic in its scope, yet at the same time extraordinarily intimate.

What is Readers Theater?

Some of you may have seen or be familiar with a staged reading. This is the general idea of Aurora Players latest endeavor. Unlike a normal play, this version is presented with actors reading from a script, without use of props, costumes or a set. The performance is done only with the dialogue and narration being read- an “Audio Play”, if you will. Something a little different and a lot of fun.
