My Life Is All But Over

June 6 - 8, 2014

Dolan // Heeringa

An unsolved murder case from 1948. A Cold War mystery. A need for closure. 1/2 detective story, 1/2 lecture demonstration, 1/2 memorial service for a man no one has ever met, My Life is All But Over is a love song for the people to whom we need to say goodbye.

With development roots in last year's Works-In-Progress program, this charming play-within-a-play searches for a closure that remains elusive despite valiant attempts to bring things to an end.
