Factory Theater: May the Road Rise Up

Now in its 26th season of entertaining on Howard Street, The Factory Theater presents "May the Road Rise Up".

Tickets: $25
Dates: February 15, 2019 - March 30, 2019
Performance Schedule: Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m.

On the eve of his grandfather's birthday, Michael Murphy steps off the bus into his hometown with only the clothes on his back and his guitar. A happy reunion with family and friends threatens to collapse under the weight of his long-buried guilt and the plague of the past on his family. Ensemble member Shannon O'Neill's newest play asks if a community can rebuild from unspeakable tragedy, or does running away create its own monsters?
