A mother and son are at a crossroads. She's finally ready to leave the family home. He's pushing fifty and just got engaged. When his fiancée hires a professional organizer to facilitate her future mother-in-law's move, more gets dismantled than just the furniture.
When change feels like the death of everything you’ve ever known, and the thing you know best is fear of change, is letting go even possible?
The Slow Dance is a thoughtful and funny look at family, identity, and the ties that can either bind or smother. A reminder that while life’s big changes can throw us off our rhythm we can learn the steps to a new dance at any age.
Apt. 10C Productions presents theatrical works that celebrate diversity of identity and creative expression; forging bonds with collaborators of differing ages, races, gender and sexual identities. Our plays center women and queer people and aim to expand the meaning of family to include everyone who wishes to create one. We make theater that stylistically straddles the magic of the real with the truth of the absurd. And we believe that what may be impossible to imagine alone can be created together.
