The Family Line by Lee Blessing
The show opened Apr. 1, 2022.
This electric new play takes place entirely in a car. A man and his mixed- race grandson, meeting for the first time, drive to Minneapolis to bring the smart and sullen fifteen year old to his birth father after his mother’s death. In those 24 hours, each of their lives will be altered in ways they never expected, even as they arrive during the most tumultuous time in the city’s history.
Blesssing’s trademark intelligence, wit and insight into the human condition are all on crackling display in this remarkable and timely drama, showcasing one of America’s best playwrights at the height of his formidable story-telling powers.
The show is a warm-hearted comedy set in 1991 on the North Side of Minneapolis! Silver’s Market has been a Jewish deli (now also selling collard greens and tortillas) and neighborhood institution for fifty years. When city inspectors threaten to close the place down, old friends Silvers, Chavez and Mooney (a Jew, a Mexican, and an African-American) are bound and determined to keep it open. Will they succeed? You KNOW they will, and how they do it will keep you laughing all night long!
The production was directed by Stage North artistic Director Peter Moore and featured long time Twin Cities favorites Michael Tezla as Silvers, James A. Williams as Mooney and playwright Minjares as Chavez. Pearce Bunting, Melanie Wermacher, Ian McCarthy and Domino D’Lorion rounded out the cast.
Stage North is located in the Capri Theater
Built in 1927, the Capri is the last of 13 theaters that once graced the north side of Minneapolis. Beautifully reimagined and brought back to a new life in 2021. Stage North is thrilled to call it home!
The Capri is the perfect space to return to local live theater in the Twin Cities. We cant wait to share it with you!
The Capri requires all guests to present proof of either full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 72 hours prior to attending any event at the facility. Masks are also required at all indoor events at the Capri.
