Think of Me Tuesday
by Ken Riaf
Most seasoned voters can recall a fabled candidate who continues to run, election after election in the same tattered tweed suit jacket, never deterred by the embarrassing loss at the polls. He’s the punchline for a running joke about a joker who keeps running…and losing. Jim ‘Buddy’ Chum is Fishtown’s forever Mayoral candidate always tilting at windmills while asking for just one shot at the top. He’s not against progress he just doesn’t want to be around when it gets here.
Building on the sold-out response to our 2019 NeverDark staged reading, Gloucester Stage presents a full world premiere production of Think of Me Tuesday.
Ken Riaf’s Think of Me Tuesday runs October 2 through October 18. Performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 pm at Gloucester Stage Company, 267 East Main Street, Gloucester, MA.
General Public tickets will be available for sale April 1st. If you want early access, consider if a subscription is right for you – with cost savings and ability to reserve seats today!
