The play runs through July 3 at the theater, 267 East Main St., Gloucester.Directed by Gloucester Stage Artistic Director Eric C. Engel, the production features the return of Academy Award nominee and Gloucester resident Lindsay Crouse to Gloucester Stage as she joins an all star cast of Boston actors featuring Richard Snee, Barlow Adamson, Sarah Newhouse, Jennie Israel and Steven Barkhimer.
