The Tin Woman – FundraiserBenefiting New Paradigm of Catholic CharitiesMay 8, 2018
SPECIAL BENEFIT PERFORMANCE FOR NEW PARADIGM OF CATHOLIC CHARITIES
The Tin Woman – A Comedy/Drama written by Sean Grennan and Directed by Will Horton
Instead of relishing life after her heart transplant, Joy enters a downward spiral, unsure whether she truly deserves a second chance. Meanwhile, Alice and Hank mourn the loss of their son, Jack, whose heart was used to save Joy. At a friend’s urging, Joy tracks down Jack’s family to find closure. But are Alice, Hank, and their daughter Sammy ready to accept Jack’s death? Based on a true story, The Tin Woman uses humor and pathos to explore loss, family, and what it means to be given new life.
The Lemon Bay Playhouse added this extra performance as a fundraiser for New Paradigm of Catholic Charities. Lemon Bay Playhouse, the actors, and the volunteers, are donating the facility and their time for this one night performance of the play, “The Tin Woman”. This benefit performance is on a night that the playhouse is normally closed. The Playhouse is donating ALL of the proceeds from this performance to New Paradigm of Catholic Charities. The cost of a reserved seat ticket for this fundraiser performance is $25.00.
The mission of New Paradigm of Catholic Charities is to provide affordable transitional housing to families at risk of becoming homeless, while teaching them the skills necessary to live a life of self-sufficiency.
