The Year Of The Suddenly by Deborah Kimmett

Sunday September 23 2018 – 7:30 PM
Presented by New Stages Theatre Company

A hilarious story of family and the love and compassion that chronicles the aftermath of a life changing moment. Written and performed by stand-up comedian, Deborah Kimmett (who wowed New Stages audiences in last season’s Hits & Misses cabaret), ’Suddenly’ is described as part stand-up, part eulogy, and masterfully walks the tightrope between bittersweet and laugh-out-loud comedy.
