Playwright Eric Coble continues his "Alexandra" trilogy with "Stranded on Earth," the next production on the Geva Theatre Nextstage (75 Woodbury Blvd.). This play tells the missing tale between "A Girl's Guide to Coffee," where audiences first met Alex, a vivacious 20-something with her whole life ahead of her, and "The Velocity of Autumn," where we again meet Alex, now in her 80's, desperately holding on to her world when everyone around her is telling her to let go. "Stranded" finds Alex as a 40-year-old woman wrestling with the choices she's made in life. Despite being the written third in the trilogy, "Stranded" is the second play in the series. Geva favorite Brigitt Markusfeld plays Alexandra in this production.
The show previews on Thursday-Friday, March 6-7, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, March 8, at 2:30 p.m., and officially opens Saturday at 7:30p.m. Shows continue through March 23. Ticket prices start at $30. To order or for more information and a performance schedule, visit gevatheatre.org or call 232-4382.
