Preview: City of Trees at Sunny Side Theatre Company
Newly-formed Sunny Side Theatre Company hits the local scene this weekend with an original play set in the city of swift rivers, farm food hitting your forks and arboreal denseness. Written by Johanna C. Pugh, City of Trees follows three friends who reunite post-grad school and attempt to save a Midtown diner from shutting down. While working together, challenges relating to identity, mental health and abuse bubble up from the surface. What happens to their friendship, and do they save the diner? These are questions that can only be answered by seeing the show for yourself. Fri, 8/2, 7pm; Sat, 8/3, 7pm; Sun, 8/4, 5pm; Through 8/18; $12-$14; William J. Geery Theatre, 2130 L St.; facebook.com/sunnysidetheatre.
