A Tree Falls in Brookline tells the story of Cormac “Mac” McIntyre, a largely unproduced and unrecognized playwright whose work is beginning to get some recognition, when a tree falls in Brookline, leaving him with a traumatic brain injury and only a shadowy recollection of his identity. Mac’s roller coaster ride through his tumultuous past to discover who he is in the present is a trip you won’t soon forget.
A Tree Falls in Brookline will be produced at Jenks Auditorium on February 18, 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27, 2022.
