Opening October 13th and Running through December 18th!
Bernard Slade’s “Tribute” makes no apologies for its sentimentality. This play is about a father who never grew up and his son who never acted like a kid. It is designed not only to make you laugh but tug at your heart strings as well. Scottie Templeton's a charming, irresponsible fellow. He’s everyone's friend, including his ex wife, his business partner and boss, his doctor and the many women he has met, accept of course his son, Jud. Scottie managed to live over fifty years without taking anything seriously including love, marriage and fatherhood. Life's been one continuous gag. But at fifty one, he finds himself terribly ill. His son Jud, alienated by years of neglect, comes to visit. Scottie's one concern is to get back into his son’s good graces which lead to a bitter sweet reconciliation in the form of a TRIBUTE!! The play was so popular they made it into a movie starring Jack Lemmon and Robby Benson in 1980.
