The Kron Repertory: 2.5 Minute Ride and Well


  • Diversionary Theatre 4545 Park Boulevard San Diego, CA, 92116 United States (map)

ABOUT THE SHOW:

Diversionary celebrates the storytelling genius of Lisa Kron by bringing two of her contemporary classics together in repertory for the first time ever! Both autobiographical plays deftly explore Kron’s hilarious and poignant relationship with two of the most perplexing people in her life: Her Parents.

2.5 Minute Ride : Returning to San Diego for the first time since its celebrated World Premiere, this inventive solo show is a roller coaster adventure through the playwright’s family album, focusing on her relationship with her Father, a Holocaust survivor. Swirling through three disparate yet strikingly resonant experiences of a trip to Auschwitz, a Brooklyn wedding and an annual outing to an Ohio Amusement Park, a disarming story emerges about the ties that bind a family and a compelling portrait of a honorable man.

WELL: This pioneering Broadway comedy begins as a reverent study of the playwright’s chronically ill Mom and her extraordinary ability to heal a racially divided community despite her inability to make herself well. But when the playwright’s carefully crafted characters start having opinions of their own, theatrical hell breaks loose threatening to unravel the entire story. This uproariously funny and magical memoir reveals how we heal ourselves is not always the best medicine for those we love.
