The Emerson Theater Collaborative presents Gary Matters, By Jacques Lamarre, in association with the Midtown International Theater Festival
In Gray Matters, we find acclaimed actress Sarah Gray in a predicament familiar to many Americans. After an emergency hospitalization, she finds herself with no insurance, no job and no prospects. Worse, she has a faulty memory. Surrounded by a well-meaning but tough agent and two self-centered young upstarts, Sarah must discover if it is possible for an actor with an Etch-a-Sketch for a brain to get back to what matters.
