MASSKUS PRODUCTIONS is involved in these UPCOMING THEATRICAL PROJECTS
Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac has returned from the wars to help take care of his ailing father, only to discover a household in revolt. The insurgent: his mom. Liberated from an oppressive marriage, with Isaac’s newly out transgender sibling as her ally, she’s on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. But in Taylor Mac’s outrageously funny and stunning comedy, annihilating the past doesn’t always free you from it. The playwright was recently awarded a MacArthur Genius Grant – after seeing this play, you’ll know why.

GULF VIEW DRIVE is the third play in Arlene Hutton’s Nibroc Trilogy—the trio of Hutton’s plays that began with Last Train to Nibroc and continued with See Rock City. In the first two plays, a young pair of Kentuckians named May and Raleigh meet, fall in love, marry and try to reconcile marital expectations and their opinionated mothers-in-law.
GULF VIEW DRIVE stands alone with an engaging story. The time frame has moved from World War II to 1953, and May and Raleigh have moved to Florida, where the crush of dreams, families and the turbulence of events just outside their door threaten their comfortable life. Their dream house shrinks as relatives descend, further testing the couple’s love in this glimpse of life in the 1950s, as they make unconventional decisions in a changing world.
