A New Broadway Comedy staring GINA AUSTIN and RAY WILLS

THE VELOCITY OF AUTUMN

By Eric Coble

SHE’S GOING OUT WITH A BANG!  The Velocity of Autumn swirls around Alexandra, an 80-year-old artist in a showdown with her family over where she’ll spend her remaining years. In Alexandra’s corner are her wit, her  volcanic passion, and the fact that she’s barricaded herself in her Brooklyn brownstone with enough Molotov cocktails to take out the block.  But her children have their own secret weapon: estranged son Chris, who returns after 20 years, crawls through Alexandra’s second-floor window and becomes the family’s unlikely mediator. No sooner are the words “Hi, Mom” uttered than the emotional bombs start detonating.    A wickedly funny and wonderfully touching discovery of the fragility and ferocity of life.

What the critics are saying:

“Bracing, honest, and deliciously funny….”   The New York Times

“A vivid poetic expression….”   The Washington Post

“Sublime and penetrating…a tale that resonates…”   Variety
