Visiting Mr Green by Jeff Baron is a warm, witty, and touching play about two very different men from two very different eras. The play itself has gone on to have over 400 productions in 45 countries and has been translated into 23 languages

Eighty-six-year-old widower Mr. Green is almost hit by a car driven by young corporate executive Ross Gardiner. Found guilty of reckless driving, Ross is ordered to spend the next six months making weekly visits to Mr. Green.

What starts off as a comedy about two people who resent being in the same room together develops into drama, as family secrets are revealed and old wounds are opened.

Directed by Ruthie Lew, “Visiting Mr. Green” is performed by Barry and Ari Lew who are reprising the roles that met with outstanding reviews when first performed at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, “Black Box” production in June. The Cape Cod Times said the play featured “Brilliant, authentic language and some fine acting, punctuated by skillful direction.”

This is the first Eventide Theatre Company production to be presented outside the Gertrude Lawrence Stage at the Dennis Union Church. It is also the first ETC production to be staged during the summer months. The Company plans on expanding its summer offerings to play to a year round audience.

This production will take place at the historic Jacob Sears Library at 23 Center Street in East Dennis.ets are revealed and old wounds are opened.
