Square One Theatre Presents Outgoing Tide

Square One Theatre continues its 26th Anniversary Season with The Outgoing Tideby Bruce Graham. This new drama hums with dark humor and powerful emotion. Gunner, husband and father, has hatched an unorthodox plan to secure his family’s future, but meets with resistance from his wife and son, who have plans of their own. ‘Before the tide goes out’ - the three must quickly find common ground and come to an understanding.

Performances of The Outgoing Tide are Thursdays through Sundays  through March 20 (2016) at the theatre’s new location on the stage of Stratford Academy at 719 Birdseye Street in Stratford, Connecticut.

The Outgoing Tide is described as a touching family drama sprinkled with surprising humor that asks what it means to truly love someone. The twists, the turns, the deeply recognizable family relationships and, of course, the humor, combine to carry the audience to a place where dignity, honesty and humanity take hold and refuse to let go. The Outgoing Tide is a powerful work devoid of sentimentality yet filed with an honorably honest conclusion.
