Secret Mask by Rick Chafe

November 16 – December 10, 2017

“A funny and heartwarming story of a father-son reconciliation.”

George and his father, Ernie, haven’t spoken for years, but suddenly George is asked to help Ernie cope with the aftermath of a stroke. Ernie struggles to regain language and memory, as George tries to overcome his long-hurt feelings, caring for a stranger he once called Dad. Each man must make sense of the past while facing an uncertain, newly-entwined future – a moving parable of prodigal fathers and sons.

“…Pickering and Parker ensure their thaw feels true. It’s beautifully played – and reason aplenty to see this warm show.”Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“Pickering manages profound dignity in his portrayal of someone who has lost a great deal of his identity.”Shepherd Express

“…THE SECRET MASK is much more holiday yule log than fruitcake. It’s powerful, it’s funny, and it’s definitely worth seeing.”

“The bottom line, good theater is good theater, whatever the season … These are the kind of fine performances that stick with you … that’s one of the best gifts you could receive this season.”Broadway World Milwaukee
