Following his shenanigans up the beanstalk, Jack has built a real estate empire in Goosetown, and now his ambitious mother is determined he should solidify their fortune by developing an amusement park and condo complex. But one property owner is refusing to leave, and Jack soon finds he’s up against more than just the old woman who lives in a shoe and her many clever children. No amount of golden eggs are enough to withstand the growing forces that line up against Jack: Pressures from Old King Cole; a dodgy partnership with the not-so-Noble Duke of York; the Giant’s wife, who is pursuing that young man who stole the harp and goose from her late husband; and Mr. Bean, who is looking for a cut of the riches his magic beans made possible. And then there’s Jill, the ex-girlfriend Jack has never stopped pining for. Tumbling After is a full-length ensemble play with two-dozen distinct and delightful characters. Directors and educators will appreciate its many contemporary themes including gentrification and eminent domain, abuse of power, the effect of grassroots organizing, and most of all, the consequences of our choices. Approximately 75 minutes.
