Bay Village Community Theater presents 'To Gillian'

An island beach house may be one widower’s escape but throw in a teenaged daughter, her best friend, and a matchmaking sister in-law and reality soon comes tumbling down in the romantic drama, “To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday" by Michael Brady.

Presented by Bay Village Community Theater, the play “gives off a warm, affirmative glow,” wrote Variety critic Richard Hummler. Frank Rich of The New York Times wrote, “Mr. Brady … writes with a rueful sophistication that keeps his story’s sentimentality at bay.”

Directed by Tim Peebles, the cast includes, Michael Attali, Kaycee Craig, Jim Hagen, Margaret Hnat, Elizabeth Mader, April Needham and Alyssa Romano. Performances will be at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, 468 Bradley Road, Bay Village.

Production dates are Friday, March 29, 8 p.m.; Saturday, March 30, 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, April 5 and 6, 8 p.m.; and Sunday, April 7, 3 p.m. Tickets are $14 general admission and $12 for students and seniors. Go to or call 440-847-8494 for tickets.
