Cockpit in Court Summer Theatre, in residence at CCBC Essex, will perform Grand Horizons by Bess Wohl, July 19 – August 4. All performances will be held at the Robert and Eleanor Romadka College Center, Cabaret Theatre at CCBC Essex, 7201 Rossville Blvd.

Grand Horizons is a sharp, witty, Neil Simon-esque production that delves into the complexities of love, marriage and family dynamics. Fifty years into her marriage to Bill, Nancy wants a divorce. While her husband seems unfazed by the decision, her two adult sons are shaken to the core, forced to reexamine everything they thought they knew about their parents’ outwardly happy lives. As the family grapples with their new reality, each must reckon with their own imperfect past and how their love for each other might express itself in new and unlikely forms. With its blend of laugh-out-loud comedy and poignant reflections, a fresh insightful look at the trials and triumphs of long-term relationships will be enjoyed by all audiences. Grand Horizons is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection.

Please note that Grand Horizons is recommended for audiences aged 17 and over due to mature themes and language. Viewer discretion is advised.
