“In love you either sink or swim…”

To continue our season’s “The Empathy Initiative”, The Seeing Place presents Bob Glaudini’s touching and warmhearted play JACK GOES BOATING. Laced with cooking classes, swimming lessons, and a smorgasbord of illegal drugs, Jack Goes Boating is a story of date panic, marital meltdown, betrayal, and the prevailing grace of the human spirit.

Written by Bob Glaudini, this revival marks the 10th Anniversary of the play’s premiere, originally produced/directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman at LAByrinth Theater. In Jack Goes Boating, Jack is a shy and awkward man who drives a limo and lives an unassuming life. His friend and co-worker, Clyde, and his wife Lucy, feel sorry for Jack and set him up on a blind date with Connie. Connie shares Jack’s shyness and awkwardness, but through each other they seem to be able to find solace within themselves. Trouble might be brewing in paradise though, as Clyde and Lucy’s marriage stumbles just as Jack and Connie’s relationship grows. When the play premiered it received lavish praise, including Variety (“Witty and knowing and all heart”) and the NY Times (“An immensely likable play [that] exudes a wry compassion.”

This play continues The Seeing Place’s “Empathy Initiative,” a year-long commitment to addressing oppression through the power of theater. With an emphasis on the organic, edgy American style of acting developed by the Group Theatre, TSP allows audiences to experience modern classics with deeper understanding of how they relate to the struggles we face today. With that, tickets are as low as $15 as a part of TSP’s Affordable Theater Initiative, making theater accessible for all.
