Main Street Players presents This Random World by Steven Dietz.
Seven characters whose worlds intersect and collide search for deeper meaning and connection in their own lives. We follow the journey of Scottie, an aging and secretive mother, who has chosen to keep distant from her children, Beth and Tim. Beth is having a tough time connecting, while Tim is stuck in a rut. Scottie is assisted by her aide, Bernadette, who struggles to connect with her younger and free-spirited sister, Rhonda. Rounding out the cast are Claire, Tim’s high school girlfriend, who lives in the past, and her current boyfriend, Gary, who is looking for a way out.
In a world where it is more and more difficult to truly connect with another human being, This Random World is a beautiful, humorous and engaging reminder to make every effort to connect to others while we still can.
The show is directed by Robert Coppel, assistant directed by Clara Lyzniak, with production manager Isaac Polanco.

Fern Katz as Scottie
Robert Fritz as Tim
Melissa Almaguer as Beth
