From Up Here showing at The Circuit Playhouse
By Lisa Lynch
Kenny Barrett did something that has everyone worried. He wishes he could just make it through the rest of his senior year unnoticed, but that’s going to be hard since he has to publicly apologize to his entire high school. At home his family is struggling with second marriages, surprise visits, school dances, and forgotten dry cleaning. This new play is about a family limping out the door in the morning and coming home no matter what.
