2007 – 2008 Season

About The Play

A warm and hilarious look at family, growing up and God, set in the autumn of 1959. ‘Over The Tavern”, by Tom Dudzick, is a comedy in the same vein as Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach Trilogy. Like Simon, Dudzick uses humour to look at love, family and religion, “Over the Tavern” is the first in a trilogy that allows us to visit the Pazinski family growing up in the fifties. “Over The Tavern” shows a boisterous Polish-Catholic family who are reminded, by 12-year-old Rudy, that the secret of life is to have fun.
