The Kitchen Theatre Company's 2018-19 Season continues with 2.5 Minute Ride by three-time Tony-winner Lisa Kron, writer of Broadway's Fun Home. Performances of 2.5 Minute Ride begin at the Kitchen Theatre Company in the Percy Browning Performance Space on November 25th and run through December 9th. Opening night is Thursday, November 29th.

In 2.5 Minute Ride, Lisa Kron invites her audience on a roller coaster ride through the Kron family album. The play switches back and forth between Kron's Michigan family's annual pilgrimage to a Sandusky, Ohio, amusement park; her journey to Auschwitz with her septuagenarian father, a Holocaust survivor; and her brother's marriage to an Internet bride. Using a complex and surprising mix of humor and seriousness, the play takes on the big things, the little things, and the unexpected ironies that tie them all together.
