Vintage Theatre presents

"Grey Gardens"

Book by Doug Wright

Music by Scott Frankel, Lyrics by Michael Korie

Directed by Sheri Wright

April 18 – May 25, 2014

"Grey Gardens" is the hilarious and heartbreaking story of Big Edie and Little Edie Bouvier Beale, the eccentric aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, once bright names on the social register who became East Hampton’s most notorious recluses. It is based on the 1975 documentary of the same title and set at Grey Gardens, the Bouviers’ mansion in East Hampton, New York. The musical tracks the progression of the two women’s lives from their original status as rich and socially polished aristocrats to their eventually largely isolated existence in a home overrun by cats and cited for repeated health code violations. "Grey Gardens" seeks to untangle the complicated dynamics of their dysfunctional mother/daughter relationship.
