"The Porch"

The Porch: Homespun Comedy Set in Lowell

Now in its 80th season, The Quannapowitt Players bring it on home with their latest production, which happens to be set on the North Shore in Lowell, circa 2002. The Porch follows three longtime friends who prepare for a Labor Day celebration while reminiscing about their lives and husbands, bickering about Lawrence Welk, sharing recipes for potato salad, and swapping stories about everything from Foxwoods senior bus trips to the President's affair with Monica Lewinsky. Meanwhile, a mystery from the past is unearthed.
