Great Barrington— From August 3 through 13, the Great Barrington Public Theater (GBPT), in partnership with Shadowland Stages, presents the world premiere of Dan Lauria’s “Just Another Day”.
In a reaffirmation of enduring love, vitality, curiosity, and affection, Dan Lauria and Jodi Long appear as an anonymous couple caught in a limbo of memories. He is rooted in comedy and she’s a poet. They meet daily on a park bench to banter, debate, share quick-witted humor, mutual love, and nostalgia for old movies, and search their memories for how and why they feel eternally connected, at least for that day. The daily encounters turn the mystery of memory and times past into a sometimes jarring but always moving play about self-possession, the thirst for life, art, and the instinct for endless love.
Already an iconic screen (“The Wonder Years”) and stage actor, this work shows off Dan Lauria’s playwriting talents in full-measure. “Just Another Day” pairs him with accomplished stage and screen actor Jodi Long, recent Emmy winner, Best Supporting Actress on the Netflix hit “Dash & Lily”. Berkshire resident, multi-award-winning playwright, and screenwriter Mark St. Germain directs.
Performances run August 3 through 13 in the McConnell Mainstage Theater of the Daniel Arts Center at Bard College at Simon’s Rock on Alford Road in Great Barrington. Tickets are $25 to $50. Tickets and more information can be found by visiting GBPT online, emailing GBPTboxoffice@gmail.com, or by calling 413-372-1980.
