Five Flights by Alan Bock

By | June 4, 2017

IAMSHE Productions is pleased to announce the performances dates and the cast and design team of the play Five Flights by Alan Bock.

Five Flights by Alan Bock is the story of three siblings who must decide what to do with the enormous aviary their late father built for his deceased wife, whose soul, he believed, had transformed into the body of a wren. After his death, his grown children are faced with the dilemma of what to do with the crumbling structure. Folded into this debate are issues of grief, religious conviction, fear of commitment, the way Russian ballet resembles a hockey game, and the courtship of Ed by Tom, a gay professional hockey player.

What critics say about the script:

“A rare discovery in a new play — an intricately constructed comedy about love and grief that is incredibly funny, surprisingly touching and soaring with joyful humanity… The play’s skylarking structure combined with Bock’s haunting substance makes this a not-to-be-missed theatrical triumph…”

AJ Esta, Back Stage


“A buoyant new comedy… Five Flights has a wonderful, limber lightness. You feel good, lifted up, watching it. Only a sweet regret lingers at the end, when it is time to leave these characters and go home…”

Steve Winn, San Francisco Chronicle
