The Great Depression is still frothing in America in the winter of 1934. It is felt most strongly in a disrepair boarding house in Duluth, Minnesota. While his wife Elizabeth continued to struggle with dementia and experiences brief glimpses of clarity, proprietor Nick Laine fights to avert the bank from seizing the property. He has been having an affair with one of the tenants, Mrs. Neilsen, but is she what he really wants?
The offspring of Nick and Elizabeth aren't without issues as well. Gene struggles with the demon of drink and has no direction in life, and Marianne is unmarried and five months pregnant. In a plot reminiscent of Eugene O'Neill, visitors and various bizarre locals come and go, each with their own mysteries and backstories. Their secrets, which range from incarceration to blackmail to morphine addiction, are steadily revealed against the evocative music of Bob Dylan.
With such an incredible tale, this show is set to please even the most discerning of show goers. You will truly be blown away, as evidenced by all of its rave reviews. Durham Performing Arts Center is the best place to see it, so make sure you block out your calendar and you will be set for the best night ever.
