9781480137806: The Porch: a new play

THE PORCH is a comedy. Laughs abound from the very first scene and rarely let up. But then, since it's a comedy about real people, life steps in, plots twist, and lives change. It's a play about the challenge of enduring friendships, and has been compared, by Broadway World, to STEEL MAGNOLIAS. Noted Boston television commentator and Emmy Winner Dick Flavin writes, "Jack Neary's THE PORCH is everything theatre should be. It is endearing, drop-dead funny, heartbreaking and, in the end, triumphant. I left the theater thinking to myself, Gee, I wish I'd written that."
