"The Velocity of Autumn" swirls around 80-year-old Alexandra, an artist facing the indignities of old age and her family’s insistence on moving her to a nursing home. With nothing to lose, Alexandra has locked herself in her Brooklyn brownstone with a pile of Molotov cocktails and is now in a standoff with her children and the police. When Alexandra is visited by her youngest son Chris -- who has climbed into her second floor window ending a 20-year absence from her life -- in the blink of an eye the emotional bombs start detonating.

For The Record:

"The Velocity of Autumn" had its World Premiere at Boise Contemporary Theater in Idaho in April 2011, and played Cleveland’s Beck Center for the Arts in Ohio in April 2012.
